Towards a phenomenological account of personal identity

Hanne Jacobs

pp. 333-361

Most contemporary philosophical discussions of personal identity still refer to or even engage with John Locke's account of personal identity in An Essay Concerning Human Understanding. For Locke, the question of personal identity is essentially a question of what it means to experience oneself as a person and, more precisely, to experience oneself as the same person at different times.
