Self and deception : a cross-cultural philosophical enquiry by Roger T Ames( )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains essays by a range of distinguished philosophers on the problem of self-deception, or rather, self and deception. The work proceeds from the assumption that changing constructions of self within Western cultures, and alternative notions of self in other cultures requires that we rethink traditional strategies for explaining the phenomenon of self-deception. The concept of self is central to any sustained inquiry into self-deception, the pertinent issue being what sort of self is victim (or beneficiary) of self-deception. Several of the authors here base their thinking on the model of "other-deception," and include discussion of the notions of double selves, multiple selves, and subsystems of the self, to address this troubling problem. Other authors argue that "other-deception" is not an adequate or reliable model to guide our thinking on this issue. The psychological and moral dimensions of self-deception generate a rich discussion, as do its epistemic implications. The concept of emotionality also receives sustained attention

Narratives of agency : self-making in China, India, and Japan( )

12 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 810 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This multidisciplinary collection underlines the importance of understanding the operations of human agency - defined here as the ability to exert power, specifically in resistance to ideological pressure. In particular, the contributors emphasize the historical and cultural conditions that facilitate the production of agency in an effort to gain a deeper understanding of the cultures of China, India, and Japan. The contributors argue that traditional Western approaches to the study of these cultures have unduly focused on the pervasive influence of family and clan (China), caste and fatalism (India), and groupism (Japan), reminding us that members of a community have to make personal choices, struggle and interact with others, and confront new challenges, all of which involve intentionality and human agency

Indian popular cinema : a narrative of cultural change by K. Moti Gokulsing( Book )

25 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book reviews nine decades of Indian popular cinema and examines its immense influence on people in India and its diaspora. Since it was published in 1998, Indian film has developed in new direction. As films today vie with Indian soap operas for popularity, film making in India has acquired 'industry status' and consequently has greater accountability to its public." "All this is reflected in this new and extensively revised edition of Indian Popular Cinema. It tracks the rise of 'designer cinema', reviews the increasingly significant Tamil cinema, and considers films made by Indians in the diaspora."--BOOK JACKET

"Cinema is a dominant force in the lives of many people living in Asia, a continent that has a number of distinguished national film industries.

Exploring with theoretical sophistication the various ways that melodrama operates, the essays contained in this volume shed light on the different traditions of Asian cinema, as well as on the wider cultural discourse in which they participate."--Jacket
