[VIDEO] Who Am I?

Below is a short video I made in 2010 as part of a YouTube series called ‘Philosophy Shorts’.  This particular video draws heavily on the opening chapter of the second part of my book The Philosophy of a Mad Man and explores the nature of self.

The video perhaps asks more questions than it answers, but hopefully you will find it interesting and thought-provoking.

Feel free to leave your own ideas about the nature of self in the comments below.

About Steven Colborne

Philosopher and author from Oxfordshire, England. Graduate of the University of Westminster, where I studied music, and the University of London, where I studied philosophy and religion. I love to write about philosophy, religion, spirituality and mental health. I have written two short books: 'The Philosophy of a Mad Man' (part memoir, part philosophical exposition) and 'Ultimate Truth: God Beyond Religion' (theological criticism). I have lived experience of mental illness. My blog - Perfect Chaos - is a good place to find out all about me, my books, and my beliefs.

  1. It made me smile. (I) do not see how what you said in this is any different than the beliefs (I) expressed. Except on meditation which (I) rarely do. Anyway… (I) liked your video. Cool.
