/ Kant's Metaphysics of the Self
In what follows, I argue that not only is the anti-metaphysical interpretation mistaken, but that Kant offers us a subtle, plausible metaphysical account of the self that has no direct analogue in the contemporary literature. In a nutshell, the view is this: selves are individuated by experiences, so that whatever entities are jointly responsible for unifying sensations into a single experience thereby constitute a single self.
