This chapter discusses the concepts of individuals and persons. Part of this discussion includes that of partial judgment and abstract argument, social relativism, and how living beings are classified as non-alien or not. It is stated that most individuals, if not all, are groping for a convincing picture of the Shadow, the Self that they are not. They do this to find out what they are or what they hope to be.

Keywords: individuals; persons; partial judgment; abstract judgment; social relativism; non-alien; Shadow; Self
