Drawing upon numerous influential thinkers of the twentieth century, including Heidegger, Bakhtin, Merleau-Ponty, Sartre, Goffman, Schrag, and Taylor, Selfhood and Authenticity articulates the phenomenological constitution by which social construction is a real possibility. Anton brings phenomenology and existential philosophy to wider audiences and makes complex insights refreshingly lucid by systematically radicalizing and integrating the notions of embodiment, sociality, symbolicity, and temporality.
