It seems that the notions of shame, honour or dignity used in the description of
modernist and postmodernist identity are helpful. They reveal not only the very identity
process, the final result of identity, but, first and foremost, methodological paths which
correspond to our search of keys to read the world, and perceive “I”. They reveal continuities
and discontinuities, stabilities and changes, systematicity of thinking and pointing,
apotheosis for the whole joining segregation and separate fragments, and finally,
accentuation of the importance, bases, and functionality. When we use the notions of
shame, honour or dignity with respect to the experienced identity, it reveals our problems
with an epistemologic familiarization with oneself and the world; stable, recurring
and new problems at the same time.
