I Am I - Sudden Flashes of Self-Awareness in Childhood by Dolph Kohnstamm
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Can you remember the first moment - that 'aha' experience - when you suddenly realised, I am myself, apart from others? Retired psychology professor Dolph Kohnstamm investigates the impact of gestalt psychology: phenomological discovery of the self. Through a series of childhood recollections and responses to an article featured in Psychologie Heute, he tracks the construction of selfhood, identification in young children and the effects it has on its relationship to time, space and the other. Dr Kohnstamm probes the significance of this phenomenon, providing an in-depth analysis of the experiences of childhood, and reveals a groundbreaking texture of lightness and darkness on the map of the human psyche. I am I offers fully referenced research into this topic, including discussions on related texts by eminent thinkers such as Jung, Sartre and Spiegelberg, and a concise history of the evolution of the awareness of the Self. A stimulating and resourceful textbook for the study and practice of child psychology and developmental/cognitive psychology.
