  • The Nature of the Selfby Paul Gulian Cobben

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 157.19

    The human self is a free self that gets shape in a society in which it is both equal to the others (as the legal person who recognizes the others as free and equal) and unique (as the moral person who is not exchangeable to the others). Therefore, the modern debate on society is dominated by the determination of the relation between right... more...

    Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 22.95 US$ 18.36

    Most people, including philosophers, tend to classify human motives as falling into one of two categories: the egoistic or the altruistic, the self-interested or the moral.
