The Two Selves: Their Metaphysical Commitments and Functional Independence
The Two Selves takes the position that the self is not a "thing" easily reduced to an object of scientific analysis.

As a consequence of its potential immateriality, the subjective aspect of self cannot be taken as an object and therefore is not easily amenable to treatment by current scientific methods. Klein argues that to fully appreciate the self,...
