At one level what a self is seems obvious. But how we experience ourselves
and others is culturally bound. Explore some different ideas of selfhood.
On this page we look at the individual self; the communal self; the
dialogical self; and the post-modern self. We also look at the contribution
of some key thinkers like George Herbert Mead.
Conversation and dialogue are central to informal education - but
are not very well understood. This page examines debates around the
ideas - and assesses the contribution of Freire, Gadamer and Habermas
to our educational understanding.
