Abstract

The philosophical concept of the self has had a hard time for a long
time. The scepticism that lay behind Hume’s ‘bundle’ theory has been
made manifest in ‘post-philosophical’ claims that the self or subject is
not so much (not even) a ‘something’ that ties together a bundle of
sense impressions, but is rather to be seen as an effect of a system of
power relations, or an illusory presupposition of the relational properties
of syntax
