The Self as a Center of Narrative Gravity
in F. Kessel, P. Cole and D. Johnson, eds, Self and Consciousness: Multiple Perspectives, Hillsdale, NJ: Erlbaum, 1992. Danish translation, \"Selvet som fortællingens tyngdepunkt,\" Philosophia, 15, 275-88, 1986. What is a self? I will try to answer this question by developing an analogy with something much simpler, something which is nowhere near as puzzling as a self, but has some properties in common with selves.
