Emerson Minimal Self – Roughly is the condition of possibility for any one of us with certain experiences, multiple synthesis, the thing that is never given to us empirically. The self of personal identity, a contrast with a computer character. Self of self understanding, the problem of subjectivity. The repertoire of background practices on which you rely on personal construction, never fully recognizing Emerson undoes the Kantian move, it must be there because if it’s not there, there’s nothing like an empirical self-story.
