Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

 
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. See also brain/brain state, mind, state of mind, I, subjects, perception, person.

Frank I 506ff
I/Nagel: identification of an objective person as myself; adds no fact to the world - therefore, such identity statements are not understandable for us! - E.g. whether I imagine that my house burns down and I am present or not makes no difference to what one imagines as being the case - EvansVs: an identity statement does not need to make a difference for a spatiotemporal map of the world, but for the manner in which the immediate environment is considered
Nagel III 31
I/objectivism/Nagel: problem of a liberal realist worldview, everyone must admit to themselves that they are a person in a center-less world who is no one else but themselves -
III 33
Distinction I/person/Nagel: allows to ask: how can I be this specific person? - What kind of fact is that? - Problem in the center-less world - Solution: "objective self" which we identify with the "I" - the "self" has the ability to form an idea about the person in the world - in doing so, it refrains from the standpoint of "I am" - the real self excludes the contingent person Thomas Nagel and his perspective as content in its worldview
