The self: reflective, relational, and embodied.
One of the great challenges to thinkers across the ages has been defining the nature of self. The notion of self has intrigued theoreticians from many disciplines with each seeking a deeper understanding of its structure and function. This paper examines three key features of the self and how they are essential to well-being. Among the many aspects of the self there are three distinct features which need to be appreciated if we are to apprehend its fundamental nature: reflectivity, relationality, and embodiment.
