  This page intentionally left blank   The Self and Its Emotions If there is one value that seems beyond reproach in modernity, it is thatof the self and the terms that cluster around it, such as self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-respect. It is not clear, however, that all those whoinvoke the self really know what they are talking about, or that they areall talking about the same thing. What is this thing called ‘self’, then, andwhat is its psychological, philosophical, and educational salience? Morespecifically, what role do emotions play in the creation and constitutionof the self? This book proposes a realist, emotion-grounded conception of selfhood. In arguing for a closer link between selfhood and emotion thanhas beenpreviously suggested,the author critically explores and integratesself research from diverse academic fields. This is a provocative book thatshould excite anyone interested in cutting-edge research on self issues andemotions that lies at the intersection of psychology, philosophy of mind,moral philosophy, and moral education. Kristj´an Kristj´ansson  received his PhD in moral philosophy from theUniversity of St. Andrews, Scotland. He has taught at the University of Akureyri, Iceland, and at the University of Iceland, where he is currentlyProfessor of Philosophy of Education.

Hehas published numerous articles on topics in moral philosophy, emotiontheory, and moral education in international journals. He is a member of the International Society for Research on Emotions and a member of theeditorial board of the  Journal of Moral Education.  For my beloved one, Nora (Chia-jung), who helps me sustainmy selfhood.
