Abstract

"...The problem of identity is an inescapable part of being born human and it is perhaps no an overstatement to say that the quality of our lives depends to a large extent on how we deal with it. In the following pages I will attempt two things: 1) to sketch the problem of identity in its universal characteristics and 2) to discuss the Buddhist approach to that problem." ~ from the article
