Seventeenth and Eighteenth Century Studies MUP

  • Highlights debates surrounding the notion of the self in the Enlightenment: on self-love, the self and the other, on self-estrangement, the political self, the gendered self etc.
  • Hopes to encourage further explorations of the topical question of identity and self-definition, the persistence of the notion of the self, its resilience across time
  • Clearly written, accessible, wide-ranging and of interest to literary scholars and general readers
  • Contributes to the dynamic development and broadening of eighteenth-century studies, focusing on the diversity of discourses during the period that scrutinised and sought to understand the notion of the self
