Horkheimer and Adorno pointed out that the concept of "person" is distinct
from that of "individual" in interesting and important ways. Person, persona
and personality imply that one finds oneself in specific personal relations,
and that one defines oneself in terms of these relationships. In contrast,
the individual is something that cannot be divided, that is self-identical.
