Life Story: Personal Identity

The latest release in the superb series from the Institute of Art and Ideas – thanks Alex! Hilary Lawson does a terrific job in moderating, one of the best if not the best I’ve come across.

We all create internal narratives of our lives. From moment to moment, but also spanning a lifetime. Do these stories of ourselves simply reflect our lives, or do they determine who we are and what we can achieve?

Philosopher of personal identity Marya Schechtman joins award-winning experimental psychologist Bruce Hood and critic and philosopher Galen Strawson.

The featured picture is from artist Megan Greydanus’ Personal Identity Installation.
