Fr. 577

What separates self from identity? Self could be seen as the correlate of elements forming our subjectivity and as the material on which identity impresses itself: biology, history, personality, etc. Identity might then be understood as more or less conscious image that we make from the elements of this correlate. Similarly, subjectivity could then be a considered an abstract legal identity to be ascribed to all human entities whereas individuality would be the particular concrete history of a given human entity. Even if we often use these terms as synonyms, they do not coincide completely but are, instead, functionally divergent. More work needed.
