Sobre o livro:
Issues of subjectivity and consciousness are dealt with in very different ways in the analytic tradition and in the idealistic phenomenological tradition central to continental philosophy. This book brings together analytically inspired philosophers working on the continent with English-speaking philosophers to address specific issues regarding subjectivity and consciousness. The issues range from acquaintance and immediacy in perception and apperception, to the role of agency in bodily 'mine-ness', to self-determination (Selbstbestimmung) through (free) action. Thus involving philosophers of different traditions should yield a deeper vision of consciousness and subjectivity; one relating the mind not only to nature, or to firstperson authority in linguistic creaturesquestions which, in the analytic tradition, are sometimes treated as exhausting the topicbut also to many other aspects of mind's understanding of itself in ways which disrupt classic inner/outer boundaries.
