Description Identity and Personhood de Laurance Joseph Splitter:

This book approaches the concept of identity from both logical-linguistic and socio-cultural perspectives, and explores its implications for our understanding of who or what we persons really are. In the process, it bridges disciplines that often remain disconnected - most notably analytic philosophy and the social sciences - and offers a novel critique of citizenship and moral education, "identity politics", and other contemporary domains of inquiry. Although the book has a multi-disciplinary focus, it is philosophical in its overall orientation (but accessible to readers from outside philosophy) and educational in its mission (but of interest to readers who are not formally educators). Chapters 2-5 discuss the philosophical and (where appropriate) scientific dimensions of identity, chapters 6-7 explore its socio-cultural dimensions and chapter 8 examines its educational dimensions and implications. The book will be of particular interest to those researching or teaching civics, citizenship education and moral education, as well as those involved in cultural, political and religious studies in a broader sense. It will also appeal to anyone who finds him- or herself wondering about the state of the world in the Twenty-First Century, and who suspects that rethinking what it means to be a person in that world might not be a bad idea. Laurance J. Splitter studied at Monash University and the University of Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar. He is currently Professor of Education and Philosophy at the Hong Kong Institute of Education, where he is also Director of General Education. He is a renowned scholar and educator in the field of Philosophy for Children and was responsible for introducing philosophy into Australian schools and classrooms during the 1980s and 1990s. He has published widely on such topics as transforming classrooms into communities of inquiry, values and citizenship education, dialogue and issues relating to identity, citizenship and culture and cultivating the life of the mind. He reaches, with one hand, into the murky but intriguing depths of analytic philosophy and, with the other, to the practical reality of classrooms, teachers and learners, in an attempt to sharpen the way students and teachers think about important issues. He also seeks to reconcile his esteem for family, friends and colleagues with his suspicion of collectives, nations, traditions and roles.
