Language users ordinarily suppose that they know what thoughts their own utterances express.
We can call this supposed knowledge minimal self-knowledge.
But what does it come to? And do we actually have it? Anti-individualism implies that the thoughts which a person's utterances express are partly determined by facts about their social and physical environments.
If anti-individualism is true, then there are some apparently coherent sceptical hypotheses that conflict with our supposition that we have minimal self-knowledge.
In this book, Anthony Brueckner and Gary Ebbs debate how to characterize this problem and develop opposing views of what it shows.
Their discussion is the only sustained, in-depth debate about anti-individualism, scepticism and knowledge of one's own thoughts, and will interest both scholars and graduate students in philosophy of language, philosophy of mind and epistemology.
