|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.

|Danto III 134
Self/Nietzsche/Danto: The psychological and the grammatical subject are two sides of the same coin. Finally, we believe in our own invention and establish a "self" that is different from "one's" activities and has a causal relationship to them. Because the Ural-Altaic language family possesses a weakly developed subject form, everyone who grew up with such a language will most likely look differently 'into the world' and can be found on other paths than Indo-Germanic or Muslim men (F. Nietzsche: Jenseits von Gut und Böse, KGW VI., 2 p. 29).
I/Nietzsche/Danto: (The Reason) believes in the "I", in the "I" as a being, in the "I" as substance and projects the belief in the I-substance on all things - it creates the term 'thing'... Being is thought into everywhere as cause, pushed underneath; from the concept 'I' only follows, as derived, the term 'being'... (F. Nietzsche, Götzen-Dämmerung, KGW VI,3p. 71.)_____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
