Kant’s Thinker

Patricia Kitcher (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter draws on the theory of the cognitive subject presented and defended in earlier chapters to develop Kantian alternatives to contemporary views of the self-ascription of belief, knowledge of other minds, and the explananda of theories of consciousness. It also shows that Kant’s new method of ‘transcendental’ argument is successful in the case of the representation ‘I-think’ for reasons that cannot be extended to other seemingly crucial concepts.

Keywords:   transcendental arguments, self-ascription of belief, knowledge of other minds, theories of consciousness
