self? (part I)

"This puzzling problem arises when we ask, 'Who is the I that knows the bodily me, who has an image of myself and a sense of identity over time, who knows that I have propriate strivings?' I know all these things, and what is more, I know that I know them. But who is it who has this perspectival grasp? …It is much easier to feel the self than to define the self."

G.W. Allport (PGP 128)
