IdentitySelf-portrait; around my head are five question marks, a Gnostic/Celtic cross, a transgender symbol, a Magen David, a voluntaryist symbol, a generic anarchist symbol, a geoist symbol (green circled club), and a pink triangle.
I believe that when it comes to personal identities, we should take the advice of Duns Scotus and divide the identity of an individual into their quiddities (whatnesses) and their haecceities (thisnesses).
A quiddity is what makes a person part of a category: e.g., Socrates was a man; Socrates was a Greek. A haecceity is what makes a person a unique individual: e.g., Socrates was a philosopher; Socrates died by being forced to drink hemlock.
Identity politics, or identitarianism, whether it be on the left (in the form of social justice warriors) or on the right (in the form of the alt-right), is concerned only with quiddities, thus reducing individuals to sets of labels. Focusing primarily on quiddities is anathema to my individualist philosophy; however, it must be noted that quiddities can and do shape haecceities to some extent. Thus I will briefly list my own quiddities and then go into detail about my haecceities.
