Dimensions of Personhood. Editors' Introduction

Journal of Consciousness Studies 14 (5-6):6-16 (2007)
Abstract
The editors' introduction to a collection on personhood. The collection is organized in three parts, with thematically differentfocuses, but also significant overlap due to the interconnectedness of the discussed issues. The first part discusses and distinguishes spe-cific ontological and conceptual questions concerning personhoodand our fundamental nature; the second part focuses on some of themost fundamental kinds of self-relations of persons, as well as their preconditions; finally, the third part focuses on interpersonal or socialrelations characteristic or constitutive of personhood. The collectionincludes both synoptic articles outlining holistic ways of conceiving amultiplicity of features or dimensions associated with personhood,and articles concentrating on specific sub-questions.
