The Artichoke Version of the Self

I’m trying to study for my Philosophy course and I need some help to understand this question.

Write a 2–3-page paper explaining the artichoke idea of the self. Remember to explain specific theories with supporting citations from the textbook and online lectures. (Here is a guide to help you with APA-style citations.)
As you develop your response, you might find some of the following questions to be relevant:

What is the existential idea of the self?
What do you make of the feminist, existential, and non-Western critiques of/alternatives to the essentialist/avocado self? Are there any problems with the idea that human beings are fundamentally rational creatures?
