bender

on suspicion of deja-vu

I commented not too long ago on this: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/04/02/us/02dna.html?ex=1333166400&en=1fcdbd43f2c89742&ei=5090&partner=rssuserland&emc=rss

Then, reading the Economist as I do every week, I came across a review of this: http://www.amazon.com/o/ASIN/0670038385/002-3223961-4779203?SubscriptionId=1MD4MCSQSNXVA6EV3WG2

I'm having a lot of problems with the philosophical issues which surround "the construction of self". Nevermind he fact that my stating that "we construct ourselves" has its own set of problems, ontological and otherwise.
