L’identité personnelle à l’épreuve de la maladie d’Alzheimer

Abstract : This research work is intended to test the concept of personal identity through the ordeal of Alzheimer's disease. The articulation of these two levels of ordeal reveals a double regime of rupture, of which diagnosis and institutionalization are the drivers of a progressive loss of identity. Diagnosis and institutionalization are ruptures which, while breaking with a certain continuity of life, cause at the same time a rupture in being, a rupture of being, a progressive rupture of identity. The challenge is to show that although the concept of personal identity does not withstand the theoretical test, the disease invites us to seek new meanings and not to allow ourselves to be locked into pre-established logics.
