Posted in Uncategorized on September 27, 2010 by Kio

You’re reading “Self-Reflective Consciousness and the Projectable Self,” Metcalfe and Kober. It’s a handout.

Same response questions: one helpful/elucidating thing, one confusing or disgreement.

Your first field assignment is due SUNDAY 10/3 AT 9PM. I’m handing out the assignment instructions in class, and will post them here later tonight.
