The Royal Institute of Philosophy Annual Lecture 2019: ‘My Three Selves’ by Philip Pettit.
“Who or what is my self? An elusive will-o-the-wisp, as Hume took it to be? A focus of existentialist anxiety: a self to which I should be true? A moral barrier to altruism: a self I should keep in its place? Or perhaps there is no single answer to the question. Perhaps there are many selves to the person I am.”
