Review by: M. Guy Thompson, Free Association Clinic, San Francisco The question as to the nature-and even existence-of subjectivity has bedeviled mankind since the dawn of civilization and occupied the attention of philosophers for millennia. Indeed, the birth of philosophy in Ancient Greece occasioned the movement away from a religious bias, which deferred the notion of an autonomous self to the unfathomable designs of the gods, toward a more rationalist view that conceived of a human subject with a perspective that was uniquely his own-and which accounted for his behavior. The his- tory of Western philosophy can even be read as a concerted en- deavor to understand what subjectivity entails, finally manifesting a separate discipline-psychology-whose aim is to explore its char- acteristics in greater depth. Yet, the more we endeavor to answer this bottomless riddle, the more remote a convincing explanation seems. After more than two millennia in search of an answer, we are just as much in the dark
