|I, philosophy: A) The expression of a speaker for the subject or the person who is herself. The use of this expression presupposes an awareness of one's own person. B) The psychical entity of a subject that is able to relate to itself.
C. Self, philosophy the concept of the self cannot be exactly separated from the concept of the I. Over the past few years, more and more traditional terms of both concepts have been relativized. In particular, a constant nature of the self or the I is no longer assumed today.

I / Situation semantics / Barwise / Perry: rule for use might be feasible: ""E "will always refer to the speaker" - Peacocke: that determined fully the meaning, however: it requires more than just understanding of the language in which it happens - the speaker must always know that he himself, for example, is Smith, or fulfills any other description - therefore a rule is not sufficient - I / Reference Rule / Peacocke: needs additional intension: manner of presentation of the first person._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
