Paper details 

In Chapter 8 of On Being Authentic, Guignon attempts to rethink the social dimension of authenticity. (i) Reconstruct his arguments for why authenticity should be considered a social virtue or commitment as opposed to merely a personal one. (ii) What does this suggest about the two basic orientations toward the good life he introduced in Ch. 1 (self-possession//enownment and releasement)? Lastly, (iii) explain how Guignon takes his solution to the problem of authenticity to support the stability of identity and responsibility undermined by the postmodern de-centering of the subject discussed in Chapter 6.
