Theoretical Philosophy: Personal Identity and the Self

Department: Philosophy
Coordinator: Dr. Cees Leijenhorst
Accessible to: Students of Philosophy
Prerequisites: Propedeutic Exam Philosophy
Period: 3&4


In this minor we will ask the philosophical question about personal identity. What do we mean by concepts such as "a person" or "the self"? Do we refer to our bodies, our minds, a combination of mind and body, a fictitious or narrative construct or a dimension of our experience? In this minor we will deal with questions concerning the self and personal identity from historical, analytical and continental-hermeneutical perspectives.
