Subjectivity, Selfhood and the Use of the Word 'I'

Jonardon Ganeri

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter addresses the following question: 'Is the minimal sufficient condition for the possession of a capacity to think of oneself as oneself also a minimal sufficient condition for the possession of a self?' It examines a number of thinkers who have answered this question in the affirmative, both in the recent Western phenomenological tradition and among the schools of classical India. It tries to establish whether there are any good reasons for answering in the negative.
