Essay on Identity
Every person is unique and one of a kind. All of us possess qualities that differentiate us from other human beings. These distinguishing features could be more or less highlighted in appearance, mindset or capabilities, but they will always persist and determine the nature of our personality. Life is full of identities – personal, social and professional. In social science identity is the way to describe individual conceptualization and personalization of objective elements of reality. In philosophy identity plays wider role and according to one of the first philosophers specifically interested in writing on identity, Erik Erikson, it is the continuation of ego and the way of distinction among psychological senses.
