Juan Fernando Sell├ęs
Can the Human Person Reach Fulfillment Through the Self Alone?


Abstract

This paper will briefly go over the history of the problem. It will then discuss the impossibility of the complete self knowledge as an ontological limit of the human being. Finally, it will address the equivalence between this ontological limit and the act of human being.
