The Self and the Life Project

One way or the other we engage in life, each other, and ourselves. We are concerned with how life will be for ourselves and for each other, and we involve ourselves in how we and other people are as human beings. Most of us do not reflect on these things all the time. Sometimes we do, and during those periods of our lives in which everything is revised, we do so a great deal — but, most of the time, this engagement manifests itself more in the form of the tacit, social, and psychological directedness of our actions, our behaviour, our way of thinking and our emotions. Our engagement manifests itself in the way we do things, and in the way we sustain and frame our daily lives, right down to the simple and dull routines. Whether we are reflectively conscious of it or not, we want something from our lives, each other and ourselves. Another way of expressing this would be: at any given moment we will be engaged in the project of experiencing life: engaged in a life project. The life project is not just an anonymous, universal process — there is a someone who has this project, a person such as you or me. This way of being a someone and of being in an intentio or first-person perspective is captured by the concept of 'the self'.
