Subjective Consciousness : A Self-Representational Theory Hardback
Some mental events are conscious, some are unconscious.
What is the difference between the two? Uriah Kriegel offers the following answer: whatever else they may represent, conscious mental states always represent themselves (whereas unconscious ones do not, at least not in the right way).
The book develops this 'self-representational' approach to consciousness along several dimensions - including phenomenological, ontological, and scientific - and defends it fromcommon and uncommon criticisms.
