Episode 5: I Am What I Am That I Am - Part 3

In this final part of a three-part series on what it means to be a self—and the final episode of the first season—Aaron discusses with the analytic philosopher Galen Strawson whether you can know your own character, thinking of yourself as the same person over time, and telling a narrative about your life.

And with Fr. James Martin, Aaron discusses knowing yourself in communion with other people and with God.
