Ian Hacking: Rewriting the Soul

I recently met with Paula Gardner, my Independent Study Supervisor, with whom I discussed Nikolas Rose’s ‘The Politics of Life Itself’ and we started to look for new points of interest that were geared towards my thesis. After getting through Rose’s book I felt there was a sense of gloom about the human race–is the mind really just a product of modulation that the brain undergoes? Where is the soul in all of this?

Paula recommended that I read ‘Rewriting the Soul’ by Ian Hacking as a means to dig deeper into my residual curiosity. I have read a complimentary chapter of this book online but will post my notes on the book, and its relevance to my thesis, once I get my hands on it–I remember Paula had a copy.

Post to follow.
