Abstract

This paper examines the transformation of individual identity in twentieth century psychological theory from the passive through to the interactive to the intra-active using models of behaviour, learning, beliefs, stress and pain. This shift in identity and the corresponding realignment of individual and environment is discussed in terms of changing locations of risks to health and the construction of the contemporary risky self.
