This book asks how identity is created and examines the history of conceptions of the self, from Aristotle to Postmodernism, to find the answers. Maan finds the human capacity to self creation exists in what have previously been problematic areas of experience-conflict, marginalization, disruption, exclusion, subversion, deviation and contradiction.
