Adaptado de la tesis principal de este libro. Aug 23, JBedient rated it really liked it. I knneth, slap me, and slap me again for using the cheesy abbreviation of keenneth term, but it’s the truth I thought I had my fill back in the 90’s, but now I have a pile of books from the library and most of them are POMO-themed, some of them I’ve already read and some of them are new to me The Saturated Self is one of the rereads.
I read it around ’95 and remembered only that I liked it enough to remember it without disdain.
Now, having reread it I saturatted say that the book is a great middle-ground overview of the Self living in a Postmodern world. The book is a great Psychological dissection of certain modern constructs that influence our psyche: Underneath the picture saturaed author asks “When one’s erotic interests are aroused by the body of Toontown’s Jessica Rabbit That’s a deep question The writing style is also pretty general and reader friendly without being bland.
Gergen avoids all the pedantic pitfalls that most POMO books fall into: Highly sdlf if your here wondering what you should read next on the overwritten subject of POMO – you should read this Dilemmas of Identity in Contemporary Life Jan 14, David Oenneth rated it it was amazing.
One of those rare social science books that blew my mind, and I read it 22 years after it was published. Highly relevant commentary on the self in postmodern society. Take Gergen’s discussions and use your brain to apply them to today. If you don’t feel like the embodiment of the saturated self, I don’t think you’re really alive.
