Human beings have the unique ability to consciously reflect on the nature of the self. But reflection has its costs. We can ask what the self is, but as David Hume pointed out, the self, once reflected upon, may be nowhere to be found. The favored view is that we are material beings living in the material world. But if so, a host of destabilizing questions surface. If persons are just a sophisticated sort of animal, then what sense is there to the idea that we are free agents who control our own destinies? What makes the life of any animal, even one as sophisticated as Homo sapiens, worth anything? What place is there in a material world for God? And if there is no place for a God, then what hold can morality possibly have on us--why isn't everything allowed? Flanagan's collection of essays takes on these questions and more. He continues the old philosophical project of reconciling a scientific view of ourselves with a view of ourselves as agents of free will and meaning-makers. But to this project he brings the latest insights of neuroscience, cognitive science, and psychiatry, exploring topics such as whether the conscious mind can be explained scientifically, whether dreams are self-expressive or just noise, the moral socialization of children, and the nature of psychological phenomena such as multiple personality disorder and false memory syndrome. What emerges from these explorations is a liberating vision which can make sense of the self, agency, character transformation, and the value and worth of human life. Flanagan concludes that nothing about a scientific view of persons must lead to nihilism.

Where is peace and joy in this hour in time? What is safe to seek and find? Why is every worthy thought, word, and deed so difficult to sustain? What is absolute? Why is the media, the Church, the arts and entertainment, business, religions, the family, education, and the government so chaotic? Who is in charge? Jezebel is. Why? Because God's people are silent. The original Jezebel lived in the ninth century B.C. as queen and wife of the dissenting King Ahab. Her pagan ways linger into every generation, hovering over everything father and mother, pastor, educator, and government. Few are spared her intrusions, especially the highly educated who lean on their own knowledge, those in positions of authority and power, and those practicing spiritism. Jezebel threatens every body, mind, and spirit, even the best of Christians, placing residency in Heaven at stake. It is time to come against what comes against God's very good people. She intimidates in order to manipulate, in order to dominate. Identify her powers and principalities, her philosophies and practices within secular humanism, Eastern mysticism, and the occult. Warriors against Jezebel are taught, led, comforted, guided, and protected by the Holy Spirit of God, who provides the strategies and powerful weapons to use in this spiritual battle. Be assured, those aware of the differences between Jezebel's ways and God's order win the war. The Satan-Jezebel-spirit uses terrorism to cause fear and submission. It is Satan at work with his original intent to be like God-in charge. Fight! Stop this evil! Where to start? Start with the heart, where God's Truth is written. The joy of the Lord is your strength. The war is worthy. In faith, hope and love, proceed to the frontlines to fight for and uphold the Absolute Truth. "Jezebel, we know where you are." Learn what pleases the Lord. Have nothing to do with the worthless ways of dissenters. "See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ" (Colossians 2:8)
