Body memory and the self

In this talk given at the University of Heidelberg, Thomas Fuchs claims that the basic continuity of the self does not result from the store of explicit knowledge that we have about ourselves and about our auto-biography. Such continuity throughout time is grounded in a deeper level of our self which basically consists of the sedimentation and growth of an embodied memory at different time-scales which remains implicitly present in every moment of our life.
