Ontologie, sciences cognitives et identité personnelle :

Abstract : The purpose of this work is to proceed at the examination of some problems related to the nebulous but so fundamental notion of personal identity. At first, we confronted both antireductionist and reductionist views upon self identity. Then, we focalise on non eliminative reductionism. We explore respective worth of psychological and corporeal criterions. Finally, we discuss internalist and externalist conceptions of mind, and drawn out some consequences about the questions of self identity and consciousness unity. Our discussion takes end with the review and the analysis of some critics, opposed to the use of thought experiments in the scope of reflections about the self. We conclude in defining some criterions of self identity which integer, through a temporal and spatial continuity, the somatic then psychological dimension of the individual.
