(p.159) 8 Conclusion and Questions for Future Research
Thinking about Oneself

Kristina Musholt

The MIT Press

This chapter summarizes the results of the previous chapters and raises questions for future research. These concern, among other things, the role of emotions for self-consciousness and social cognition; the relation between language and explicit self-and-other representation; and the synchronic and diachronic integrity of the self-concept. It suggests that tackling these and other questions will require interdisciplinary collaboration between philosophers, psychologists, ethologists, anthropologists, cognitive neuroscientists, and others.

Keywords:   emotions, language, synchronic identity, diachronic identity, interdisciplinarity
