PHIL 50.37 Self-Consciousness

This seminar examines leading proposals for understanding self-consciousness, self-knowledge, and their significance in the philosophy of mind, philosophy of action, and theories of the self.  We will address questions such as these:  How are ‘I’-thoughts properly conceived?  Are they irreducible, or is there some way in which they can be explained in other terms?  In what sense, if any, are you directly acquainted with your own states of mind?  Is self-knowledge perceptual?  Is it constitutive of one’s status as a rational being?  How should our answers to these and related questions affect how we conceive of the self and its capacities?




Two Philosophy courses, or permission of the instructor.

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
