Knowing Our Own Minds

Crispin Wright, Barry C. Smith, and Cynthia Macdonald


Self‐knowledge is the focus of considerable attention from philosophers, and a topic of special relevance to a broad range of issues in epistemology, philosophy of mind, and philosophy of language. This volume provides an important overview of recent work on the subject by bringing together original essays by a number of philosophers. Many of the papers have become standard reference items in this literature.

Keywords: avowals, Cartesianism, externalism, first‐person authority, inner states, introspection, mental states, privileged access, self‐ascription, self‐knowledge
