Summary/Abstract: In the first part, this paper will explain how identity means indexical first person. I interpret the thesis that personal identity is indivisible like the point of a needle. Secondly, I argue that understanding an agent in itself is when we can make theirs reasons explicit. Consequently, multiple identities can never refer to an agent, only its attributes. My conclusion will be that being in the communication space logically precedes the understanding of the agent's identity - first there is the community and then the individual.
