Self and Determination: An Inward Look at Collective Liberation (Anarchist Interventions)

Self and Determination: An Inward Look at Collective Liberation (Anarchist Interventions) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Self and Determination examines the way selves are constructed through physical experiences, social forces, and cultural meanings that determine the conditions and limitations of social transformation. Joshua Stephens puts cognitive and neuro- science in conversation with Buddhist practice and critical theory, tackling "the self" as a site of intervention and decolonization. A crucial rethinking of the practicalities of on-the-ground organizing and the assumptions that drive it—from Occupy to international solidarity.

Joshua Stephens is a board member of the Institute for Anarchist Studies. His writing has appeared in Perspectives on Anarchist Theory, Upping the Anti, and The European Journal of Eco-Psychology.

Synopsis:

The personal may be political, but what is a person? "Self" help for revolutionaries.
