The aim of the present essay is to compare the meaning and the supposed origin of the Self, ontologically intended, between some of the most prominent psychologists and the main philosophical and religious/spiritual traditions.
This comparison allows to delineate similarities and differences between the two different approaches highlighting the knowledge of “Who we really are”, therefore allowing answers concerning the essential question “Who am I?” and consequently the purpose and meaning of life.
