Introspection and Consciousness Hardback
Edited by Declan (Assistant Professor of Philosophy, Assistant Professor of Philosophy, the Ohio Sta Smithies, Daniel (Professor of Philosophy, Professor of Philosophy, Australian National University) Stoljar
Part of the Philosophy of Mind Series series
The topic of introspection stands at the interface between questions in epistemology about the nature of self-knowledge and questions in the philosophy of mind about the nature of consciousness.
What is the nature of introspection such that it provides us with a distinctive way of knowing about our own conscious mental states? And what is the nature of consciousness such that we can know about our own conscious mental states by introspection?
How should we understandthe relationship between consciousness and introspective self-knowledge?
Should we explain consciousness in terms of introspective self-knowledge or vice versa?Until recently, questions in epistemology and the philosophy of mind were pursued largely in isolation from one another.
This volume aims to integrate these two lines of research by bringing together fourteen new essays and one reprinted essay on the relationship between introspection, self-knowledge, and consciousness.
