It is said that a person's identity is made up of those properties that endure over time, that are made up of those traits that make one identifiable. The mind-body duality is closely linked to the identity of the individual and has been studied since ancient times. Beyond his successes and failures, Descartes's meditations help us to reflect on where the essence of being lies, especially in these times when new identity realities arise and where social networks mark a new concept about what are.
