Summary
"This volume illuminates the processes of self maintenance and change. Each chapter is written in a clear and engrossing style, which makes the work interesting and informative, even to readers without a technical background. The work is organized into three main approaches, the first being concerned with self-growth or self-building. This section argues for the social and psychological benefits of becoming aware of who we truly are - for example, moving toward our ideal selves and being open to what we find around us. The second view of self and self-change describes the self as motivated to maintain illusions and a flattering self-image. This section puts a new spin on understanding processes associated with defending the self. Lastly, the third section recognizes that we regulate everything from our food intake to our emotional responses. The chapters in this final section provide several new perspectives on regulating the self." "On Building, Defending and Regulating the Self is part of a series sponsored by the International Society for Self and Identity, presenting research that is currently leading scientific inquiry into aspects of self and identity."--Jacket
