I have to say that I actually thought it was just as good. But as you
say one's own interests come into play and I have to say I find the
history of the subject and the way people construct subjectivity and
the self a particularly interesting subject. It is good to see such a
rigorous historical exposition of an area which in contemporary
society is the subject of so much imprecise and self indulgent
