Starting with the invention of the mirror, human beings have found more and more ingenious ways of seeing themselves as others do. The development of smart phones, combined with the use of social media, have meant that we see ourselves from the outside more than at any other time in our history. In this session we will consider how we might think about the kind of self-consciousness involved, and will talk about what the costs and benefits we might expect to flow from the ability to be able to present ourselves to ourselves in these ways.
