Item description for Person (Grundthemen Philosophie) (Grundthemen Philosophie) by Michael Quante...
The philosophical question of an individual's identity has not been well resolved. Contrary to the term s use in everyday life, and even within philosophy, identity is not a unified phenomenon. Rather, the identity of an individual has to be analysed by answering the following questions:
1. What determines the entity of an individual? 2. What has to happen so that an individual from yesterday is 'identical' to the individual of today? 3. What do we regard as identity in the sense of self-understanding and self-awareness?
This book shows how in our everyday life the two 'identities' of human individuals - persistence and personality - intertwine.
