Conceptions of the Self Zussman points out that the concept of the  self has been subject to significant  variation over time Essentialized notions have posited the self as  the soul and as the source of human intellect More modern approaches emphasize the self  as fluid and malleable, never clearly defined  but nonetheless giving the impression of  stability

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
