The Person as a Self-Conflicting Unity


/Review: Hili Razinsky, Ambivalence: A Philosophical Exploration, London & New York: Rowman & Littlefield International, 2016), 296 pages./

In Ambivalence: A Philosophical Exploration, Hili Razinsky defines a conception of ambivalence in contrast to what she perceives to be its denial or marginalization as a specifically prominent form of mental attitude by predominant philosophical theories. In light of this, Razinsky wishes to analyze the existence of this phenomenon in the context of considering it as a basically rational character of mental attitudes. Of the claim is that rethinking ambivalence in the manner provided in this book will shed new light on the problems of personhood, rationality, and their relations.
