|I, philosophy: A) The expression of a speaker for the subject or the person who is herself. The use of this expression presupposes an awareness of one's own person. B) The psychical entity of a subject that is able to relate to itself.
C. Self, philosophy the concept of the self cannot be exactly separated from the concept of the I. Over the past few years, more and more traditional terms of both concepts have been relativized. In particular, a constant nature of the self or the I is no longer assumed today. See also brain/brain state, mind, state of mind, I, subjects, perception, person._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

I/Nietzsche/Danto: (The Reason) believes in the "I", in the I as being, in the I as substance and projects the belief in the I-substance on all things - it creates the term 'thing'... Being is thought into everything as cause, pushed underneath; from the concept 'I' only follows, as derived, the term 'being'... >Self/Nietzsche, >self-consciousness/Nietzsche, >subject/Nietzsche, being/Nietzsche, thing/Nietzsche.
