Available as a Google eBook for other eReaders and tablet devices. John Russon’s Human Experience draws on central concepts of contemporary European philosophy to develop a novel analysis of the human psyche.
Beginning with a study of the nature of perception, embodiment, and memory, Russon investigates the formation of personality through family and social experience. He focuses on the importance of the feedback we receive from others regarding our fundamental worth as persons, and on the way this interpersonal process embeds meaning into our most basic bodily practices: Russon concludes with an original interpretation of neurosis as the habits of bodily practice developed johhn family interactions that have become the foundation for developed interpersonal life, and proposes a theory of psychological therapy as the development of philosophical insight that responds to these neurotic compulsions.
Russon has clearly challenged many prejudices. He describes experiences that question the prejudice about presence, about our bodies being mass or extension, about memory being subjective, and about the normal self being understood as a ‘self-contained choosing power.
