Summary
"In partnership with the Nour Foundation, the New York Academy of Sciences presented a six-part series of public events, from December 2010 through May 2011, examining the question "What is the Self?" The series brought together experts from the sciences and humanities to discuss the evolving notion, construct, and experience of the Self without losing sight of the subjective value that makes this topic so integral to each of us. In addition to transcripts from each of the six public events, short perspective articles by several of the participants explore specific issues related to their individual experiences and field study"--Publisher's description
