Attributing Responsibility to the Narrative Self

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
Abstract
The self is not a metaphysical object but a mode of temporal organization unified by responsibility. Learning to be responsible constitutes the self as a self-identical entity over time. Responsibility depends on the current self interpreting previous events, attributing them to itself and thereby committing itself for the future. (2004)
