Reifying the Ephemeral Self

     "Some important part of consumption is really about and for oneself. It represents our desire to enlarge, to complete, to reify ourselves. With our purchases, we try to become more acceptable not fundamentally to others but to ourselves."

       Richard Todd. "The Thing Itself. On the Search for Authenticity." Riverhead Books, NY, 2008.
