As far as I know, I am the only one who has responded to John's
suggestion of working through Taylor's _Sources of the Self_. The book
is rather intimidating, both in its size and scope, yet also quite
readable even to those who are not students of philosophy. I would like
to encourage listers who are interested in the topic of the modern self
to consider taking part in the discussion. My guess is that the book is
in many libraries. Also, John has made an excellent choice in choosing
the first chapter for discussion. It is accessible and thought
provoking. I have asked John to hold off on the discussion so that
others can join us. If people would like to join us, we can wait. So
please let us know if you would like to join us. Thank you.

And, thank you, John and Phil, for your generous offer. I'd like to join in. I have a problem - I'll be away from access to e-mail for 8 days (May 28th-June 5th), and very busy in the time from now until then, so I won't initially have much to say (or, more accurately, will probably have too much to say, and insufficient time in which to articulately express it). Could we agree on some short, easily identifiable tag to the 'Subject' header so that it will be relativel easy to access discussion from the archives? I'm thinking of something as short and simple as (CT) or (SoS) …
