Nadia Hassan reads ‘Re-thinking identity: Children’s experiences of self’
Listening | Psychology | 2021-12-12
In the best episode of ‘Essentia Readings’ yet, Nadia Hassan introduces us to her young niece, a child who is aware, during sleep, of the fact that she is asleep. This suggests that our original, natural sense of self and consciousness, before culture tells us how to think about both, is much different than our adult understanding. The original essay by Dr. Thomas can be found here.
