This article is intended to be a first step within a long-term project dedicated to Charles Taylor’s volume Sources of the Self. The Making of the Modern Identity (1989). In particular I focus on the method adopted by Taylor in his studies concerning the making of the modern identity. In order to reach this aim I consider in particular two essays: Philosophy and its History (1984) and Modernity and the Rise of the Public Sphere (1993). From this analysis (which also focuses on Taylor’s concept of practice) it emerges that according to Taylor, in order to write a history of the modern identity, a constant reference to moral sources, to the visions of the good articulated during that time cannot be avoided.
