Summary/Abstract: Starting from the complexity and necessity of the meaning and determination of the issue of identity, in this paper I try to get closer to the definition of identity and the meaning of conflict. In this sense, the complexity of determining the nature of identity is implied when conflicts are set as a key place for determining identity, through which the connection between conflict and identity is considered. Thus, here, the definition of identity is closely related to the definition of conflict as an integral part of life that we understand through the negation and contradictions of meaning. The meaning of conflict in the meaning of identity has a necessary character because it is determined by the necessity of the existence of freedom in human thought and action.
