MEDIA REVIEWS
..."one of the most ambitious and impressive philosophical works to come out of Ireland in recent years."
-Fintan O'Toole, "The Irish Times
"One of the pleasures of the book is the sheer range of reference that Benson deploys. (Benson's) notion of the self as a way of placing ourselves in the world, as a "navigational system" for journeys into an unpredictable world seems especially appropriate in a culture that has been created by the displacements of emigration and economic transformation. What is abundantly clear, though, is that such answers can only come from the ranging of open minds through the wide domain where science, art, history and philosophy meet. Ciaran Benson has mapped that terrain brilliantly."
-Fintan O'Toole, "The Irish Times
"Theorising rigorously about the mind is a notoriously difficult undertaking. This year Ciaran Benson published a tour de force, "The Cultural Psychology of Self, which conceives of our inner worldviews as active systems formed by, but also navigating, a sea of biological, developmental, social, moral and historical forces."
-Peter Fitzgerald, "Circa: Irish and International Visual Culture
"The second part, with chapters devoted to the ontogenesis of moral thought, of altruism, and of the aesthetic and civic dimensions of life, is a tour de force by a writer of penetration and grace."
-Daniel Robinson, "Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology
." ..a book rich in insight, deep in significance... the work of a tutored and passionate mind."
-Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology
