Summary note
Shaun Gallagher puts forward a pluralist account of the self, and a philosophical account of psychiatric disorders as disorders of the self. He argues that what have been seen as different selves - physical, social, private, extended - should rather be seen as variable factors or processes organized in a certain pattern: this pattern is the self.
