The Real, Inmost Story

Too much to like in this:

The Building Blocks of Personhood: Oliver Sacks on Narrative as the Pillar of Identity

In particular, this:

We have, each of us, a life-story, an inner narrative — whose continuity, whose sense, is our lives. It might be said that each of us constructs and lives, a “narrative,” and that this narrative is us, our identities.

If we wish to know about a man, we ask “what is his story — his real, inmost story?”

A good question to ask ourselves and one another.
