The current issue of Philosophy Now speaks to the interrelated issues of identity and xenophobia:
"Who are you, and who am I? ...[Y]ou have probably come across such questions many times. We ask them in metaphysics, the philosophy of mind, epistemology, as well as the philosophy of psychology and related areas. However, nowhere does the problem of the supposed identity of self and other wreak havoc as it does in the area of human relationships – moral, social and political. When we think about who we are, we also think about who we are not; we define ourselves off against an ‘other’."
