ECC: Self in Edith Stein

Read about the concept of self in Edith Stein (1891-1942).

“The concept of the self in Edith Stein’s work is central to her conception of the human person. Throughout her corpus the self can be understood as denoting the experience of ownness, which Husserl defines as what properly belongs to the realm of the I. This ownness or what is seized properly one’s own is one of the fundamental senses of personhood that Stein develops in her philosophy.”
