about this story

The philosophy of Gilbert Ryle regarding the self is "I act, therefore I am", contradicting Rene Descartes' "I think, therefore I am." He believes that there is no dualism as the body and mind are connected, which means that both our physical body and non-physical mind are intertwined together.
Ryle believed that how we act or what we do defines who we are. With the things that you do, people can describe who you are. For example, the habit of smoking might make people think that the smoker has some negative personality or social traits.
From Ryle's perspective, it can be understood that the person's behavior and actions are the basis of how the people around them see or describe them. Always being alone might make other people think that you are an introvert, or someone might believe that you are brave because you join the military.
The philosophy of Gilbert Ryle is a perspective that opposes the belief in dualism, giving us another self-view, and that is why we are studying his philosophy, "I act, therefore I am."
