Facing My True Self: Persona and the Nature of the Soul

Video Game Track A - Panel Room 22

Friday August 4, 2017 - 7:00 pm to 7:50 pm

In honor of Shin Megami Tensei Persona’s 20th anniversary and the release of Persona 5, we’re taking a look inside ourselves to see the true nature of the soul. Personas, the namesake of the game series and an integral part of the story, character development, and gameplay, have their birthplace in the soul. As such, the soul plays an important role not only in the series but also in philosophy. Join Entertainment Stew as we apply philosophical thought to Persona and see if our true selves really lie in the soul.
