Experience beyond Storytelling: László Tengelyi on the Narrative Identity Debate
published online: 02. 03. 2017
The article focuses on narrative identity theory and its criticism in the work of László Tengelyi. It shows the particular way Lászó Tengelyi challenges narrative identity theory by employing the concept of “experience”, which is inspired by certain phenomenological, especially French-speaking, philosophers. In the concluding part, some open questions in Tengelyi’s account of selfhood are addressed, such as the retrospective character of the narrative, the notion of action as adventure, and the role of the ethics of alterity in the philosophical analysis of personal identity.
