Human scientific accounts of self-fragmentation and the fragmentation of society ought thus to be of genuine theoretical concern to theologians. My intention in this chapter has not been to describe in fine detail the various ways in which self-unity is important theologically; that particular discussion must wait until Chapter 5. Rather, I have attempted to show its fundamental significance in contemporary theological anthropological discourses of the modern individual’s distressing predicament, and introduce several central ideas upon which a critique of the widespread theological attitude towards self-fragmentation can be based.

Paying Attention to the Human Sciences: The Fundamentals of Dialogue In the remainder of this chapter, my intention is to prepare the ground for an analysis of contemporary theological anthropology’s unsatisfactory and rather ambiguous relationship with secular accounts of the fragmented self. To these ends, I will use an insightful and ambitious book, Paying Attention to People, by Vernon White, both to illustrate the major dialogical themes, and to highlight those vexatious issues that require further critical attention.

83 White’s thesis, however, bears some common hallmarks of this kind of theological study: a very slippery notion of self-fragmentation, and a certain ambiguity about how, precisely, such fragmentation manifests itself in the individual. This, of course, is to be expected given the lack of attention that recent theology has generally paid to the psychological understanding of this concept. Self-fragmentation often seems to be the villain of the piece as far as theologians are concerned, but its misdemeanours are far from self-evident and it is never really satisfactorily unmasked.
