The article is a theoretical review of former and actual conceptions of
personal identity that after Seymour Epstein (1991) may be concerned from two
perspectives: (1) the subjective and (2) the objective. The first one refers to affective
manner of self-experiencing and displays in identity senses, such as – for example
– sense of self-continuity, sense of distinctiveness from other people, or sense
of self-unity (that are more characteristic for traditional identity) and sense of
self-openness, sense of inner variability, sense of self-changeability (that are more
characteristic for so called fluid identity). The literature gives many elements of
subjective identity and one of the aims of this article is to gather these different
elements and to propose some kind of grouping them depending on socio-cultural
context of individual’s living. The propose of grouping of identity senses is
hypothetical and demands empirical verification. In the article the second, objective
perspective of personal identity is also presented, and as a conclusion there is
a postulate to integrate in research on identity these two perspectives, especially in
a context of contemporary world that is very varied, complex and dynamic.
Key words: personal identity, self-concept, self-experiencing, identity senses,
