About the Authors
  • In this original and challenging study, André Gallois proposes and defends a new thesis about the character of our knowledge of our own intentional states. Taking up issues at the center of attention in contemporary analytic philosophy of mind and epistemology, he examines accounts of self-knowledge by such philosophers as Donald Davidson, Tyler Burge and Crispin Wright, and advances his own view that, without relying on observation, we are able justifiably to attribute to ourselves propositional attitudes, such as belief, that we consciously hold.

    • Accomplished treatment of a very difficult topic
    • Distinctive and challenging arguments
    • Provocative engagement with the work of other scholars
