The Problem of Temporal Identity of  the “Self”


Identity of the "Self" in time is not a consequence of the similarity or cause-effect relationships of successive states of consciousness. The identity is also not determined by the structure of my body and brain, since this structure can in principle be copied. On the contrary, ‘Self’ is something absolutely single, it cannot simultaneously exist in several individuals independent of each other. Identity of the "Self" in time is considered as a manifestation of the super-temporal unity of consciousness, directly experienced as a phenomenon of meaning.
