Abstract

A very basic question in philosophy concerns the nature of self and its relationship with other selves; whether the self or person is constituted by its community or society, or it is what is due to some universal element which is shared by all selves, call it reason (Kant) or Atman ((Indian thought). In ethics, the same question would becomewhether the self owes duties to its immediate community alone, or whether it owes duties to itself on the one hand, and to entire humanity on the other.
