Re: 3-way merge proposalEdit

Merge Psychological identity into Identity (social science) since the former is a stub that falls under the latter. Keep these distinct from Personal identity, which has an entirely different set of arguments. Possibly rename the philosophical notion to Personal identity (philosophy) to avoid confusion.

Have done everything except merge psych. identity with ID (SS), which seems worth mulling over a bit more. { Ben S. Nelson } Lucidish 00:05, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

Who or what forms 'our' identity? Mother, father or even dog. Its a number of processes that allow a identity to structure. 05:47, 23 April 2006 (Talk)

Sadly this has a direct quote from [][1]. I am currently working on wikifying this article.

Is there a separate page for anthropological concepts of identity? Would it be fair to start one? The section on anthropology and identity in this article is not working. Eli.pousson (talk) 21:34, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

Replace psychology as a field of "speculation" under Implications with "study". Psychologists discourage speculation - we seek evidence rather than speculate. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jilldavidson53 (talkcontribs) 15:58, 12 July 2011 (UTC)


There is a bit of mention of sociology in the page currently, but it's wholly inadequate. Identity is a concept used in sociology even more than in psychology or anthropology, and most of the theoretical, conceptual, and significant empirical foci are missing completely. When I have time, I'll compose text for it (or edit what someone else adds, if needed).

If anyone is fluent in the sociology of identity, please feel free to insert a major section on it here! It's very much needed! I just don't have time to write it right now.
