Abstract

This article aims to interrogate George Herbert Mead’s account of the Self. While recognising that Mead’s work provides an invaluable contribution to theories of the self, it is argued here that a number of the theoretical underpinnings employed by Mead hold back his theories. It is maintained that this restricts Mead’s conceptualisation of the “I” and the “me”. Furthermore, his theoretical basis led to a number of shortcomings in his attempts to unify his theories of the self with his theories of ethics.
