What is the nature of the self? Who am I? What is my identity? or what is an identity? In this fascinating talk Dr. Peter Fenwick details the history and development of views on the self. Starting with the Greek philosophers, moving into Islamic Caliphs, Descartes and modern thinking, Fenwick sketches a broad outline of views on the nature of the individual and his development over time. Having watched this clip extensively I found it really fascinating and highly recommend watching it.
