Personalism is a philosophical school of thought searching to describe the uniqueness of a human person in the world of nature, specifically in relation to animals. One of the main points of interest of personalism is human subjectivity or self-consciousness, experienced in a person's own acts and inner happenings—in "everything in the human being that is internal, whereby each human being is an eye witness of its own self".

Other principles:

  1. Persons have unique value, and
  2. Only persons have free will

According to Idealism there is one more principle

  1. Only persons are real (in the ontological sense).
