  3. Timothy J. Reiss (2003). Mirages of the Selfe: Patterns of Personhood in Ancient and Early Modern Europe. Stanford University Press.
    Through extensive readings in philosophical, legal, medical, and imaginative writing, this book explores notions and experiences of being a person from European antiquity to Descartes.
