This seminar is a general course on self-knowledge guided by two questions: how do we know our minds? and, do we actually have self-knowledge? The former question is the traditional query in the field. When examining it, you will learn some different models on the phenomenon. The latter question has more clearly emerged from contemporary work that raises skeptical doubts about self-knowledge. We will finish the course by examining the linkage between self-knowledge and rationality, which stands as a line of response against skepticism.


In the first part of the block seminar we will see together the different theories on self-knowledge. In the second part, students will give presentations on selected topics.
