American philosopher Calvin O. Schrag here sketches a new portrait of the human self by way of a critical engagement with the proponents of postmodernity, experimenting with an innovative vocabulary so as to describe self-understanding and self-formation in its discursive, action-oriented, communal, and transcending dynamics. "Written in a language wonderfully accessible to an intelligent public, Schrag's text is no less theoretically accomplished for its readableness. It enlivens the key conceptual debates defining twentieth-century thought by advancing a timely, distinguished, and challenging profile of the self. . . . I cannot recommend The Self after Postmodernity highly enough. It is an enlightening book, eminently suited for teaching both upper-level undergraduates and graduates. . . . The ideas conveyed here are as intellectually stimulating as the prose is beautiful."-Patricia Huntington, Human Studies "Readers familiar with Schrag's impressive Communicative Praxis and the Space of Subjectivity will welcome this overview of his though. . . . [The chapter entitled] 'The Self in Transcendence' expresses Schrag's edifying vision in its richest and most complex form. . . . Strongly recommended."-Choice
