Self Communication

Self – formation & the concept of self as inseparable from communication.

A Philosophical Analysis.The following is a philosophical analysis of the concept of ‘self-formation’, and in turn, the relation to human communication. Examined in this paper, will be the specific notion as to whether such a ‘thing’ as a self exists, without a notion of a community or communication. What will be argued, is that the self, in-itself, is inseperable from language, and if one can understand the nature of one-self, then, one has access to the self through communication. Further, if there is no such thing as a private language, or a self-understanding which cannot be shared to some extent, then, the notion of the self has to be understood as communally determined.
