How do you know your own thoughts and feelings? Do we have ‘privileged access’
to our own minds? Does introspection provide a grasp of a thinking self or ‘I’?
The problem of self-knowledge is one of the most fascinating in all of
philosophy and has crucial significance for the philosophy of mind and
epistemology. In this outstanding introduction Brie Gertler assesses the
leading theoretical approaches to self-knowledge, explaining the work of many
of the key figures in the field: from Descartes and Kant, through to Bertrand
Russell and Gareth Evans, as well as recent work by Tyler Burge, David
Chalmers, William Lycan and Sydney Shoemaker.
Beginning with an outline of the distinction between self-knowledge and
self-awareness and providing essential historical background to the problem,
Gertler addresses specific theories of self-knowledge such as the acquaintance
theory, the inner sense theory, and the rationalist theory, as well as leading
accounts of self-awareness. The book concludes with a critical explication of
the dispute between empiricist and rationalist approaches.
Including helpful chapter summaries, annotated further reading and a glossary,
Self Knowledge is essential reading for those interested in philosophy of mind,
epistemology, and personal identity.
