(p.1) Introduction
Attention, Not Self

Jonardon Ganeri

Oxford University Press

This book is an exploration of the reorientations that take place when attention is given priority in the analysis of mind. In this book it is argued that attention has an explanatory role in understanding the concept of the intentionality or directedness of the mental; the nature of mental action in general; of specific mental actions such as intending, remembering, introspecting, and empathizing; the character of the phenomenal and of cognitive access; the unity of consciousness; the epistemology of perception; the nature of persons and their identity; the distinction between self and other, and the moral psychology that rests upon it.

Keywords:   Buddhist philosophy, philosophy of mind, attention, analysis of mind, mental action, self, person
