Personbegriff und personale IdentitätZur Verbindung von Boethius’ Contra Eutychen et Nestorium mit der Consolatio Philosophiae

Zusammenfassung / Summary

The Consolatio Philosophiae, written by Boethius in the prison of Pavia 524 AD, provoked on account of its ostensibly pagan-philosophical content the question of its relationship to the five Theological Treatises of the late antique author. This paper argues for the thesis, that Boethius presented in the Consolatio on the basis of his definition of person in the fifth treatise Contra Eutychen et Nestorium, and under the heading of "self-knowledge" a normative concept of personal identity, which he elaborated in the form of a narrative identity construction. It turns out that this normative concept of personal identity is (Neo-)Platonic, Aristotelian and Christian.
