Since the commissive or promissive projects the self of the agent into an open future, the self emerges here in a context of action whereby, through the kept word (la parole tenue), the self attests to itself as a project and not as a possession.
The self is determined by actions which we have described above as commissives or promissives. In projected actions the identity is not substantive but as fragile as the promise given to another.
