The aim of the article is to show the meaning of the narrative identity concept that becames visible in the light Habermas’ social philosophy, and in particular of the thesis about the colonization of the world of life by the system. In this perspective, pluralism itself, the multiplication of discourses in the modern and post-modern world does not pose a threat to identity. Destructive for the constitution of personal identity is rather a special kind of unification of the sphere of communication, and thus weakening the narrative skills necessary for the formation of the subject.
