"I feel that a formulation which puts the self into the centre of the personality as the initiator of all actions and as the recipient of all impressions exacts too high a price... If we instead put our trust in empirical observation .. we will see different selves, each of them a lasting psychological configuration, .. fighting for ascendancy, one blocking out the other, forming compromises with each other, and acting inconsistently with each other at the same time. In general, we will witness what appears to be an uneasy victory of one self over all others."
