We are awash in ideological crazy-talk about "the self": Moralists say we have to overcome our selves because they are selfish Psychotherapists say most people's aren't working well, and need tune-ups using their expert understanding of how selves should work Spiritual teachers say we have somehow misplaced and forgotten our true selves, and must go on quests to find them Most implausibly, Buddhists say the self does not exist-and, worse, many pop science writers agree!
