Affect and the Self

Show Summary Details


This chapter explores the various dimensions of the self in the Tolai context, and is organized around such terms as individuality, selfhood, and identity. None of these has achieved in the literature the degree of refinement that would seem desirable, and as things stand there is some overlap between them. Despite this, each can be used to illuminate different aspects of a complex matter.

Keywords: Tolai; individuality; selfhood; identity
