Philosophy of identity and self-identity is a big topic in metaphysics. Who are we, what defines us, what parts of us need to change in order for us to no longer be ourselves, etc.
One topic I find particularly interesting is whether and why people do or don’t see their lives like a narrative.
For example, do you see yourself as the protagonist in a kind of story, a protagonisht whose identity remains stable, a story with an overall plot, with obstacles and conflicts to overcome, with character development and progression, with scene and setting and chapters?
Or do you not see your life like a narrative at all–perhaps more as a collection of loosely related (or even unrelated) episodes, where your sense of self doesn’t really carry forward from one episode to the next?
Perhaps somewhere in between?
