I've worked on identity for a number of years, and have my third book on the identity of economic agents forthcoming in 2024. One dimension of this I have emphasized concerns how agents are reflexive beings. For an application of this idea to financial markets see:
“Belief reversals as phase transitions and economic fragility: A complexity theory of financial cycles with
reflexive agents,” Review of Evolutionary Political Economy 1:1 (2020): 67-84.
In my forthcoming 2024 book I advance an identity conception of individual agents as reflexive beings who continually adjust their behavior in an uncertain world - using a process rather than state description of individuals, as urged by Herbert Simon. Chapter 4 of the book lays out in some detail the account of adjustment I employ, including discussing how individuals are made up of capabilities and can reason counterfactually about the world.
The painting below, Las Meninas by Velazquez, is a famous expression of reflexivity, the idea of something reflecting back on or mirroring itself. For an excellent discussion of how the artist expressed reflexivity in the painting, see:
For an application of the reflexivity idea to economic methodololgy, see Davis, J. and M. Klaes (2003) “Reflexivity: Curse or Cure?” Journal of Economic Methodology, Vol. 10, no. 3: pp. 329-352 (posted below).
