Abstract:

"Lucy O'Brien argues that a satisfactory account of self-reference and self-knowledge needs to concentrate on our nature as agents. She considers two main questions. First, what account should we give of first-person reference that will respect the guaranteed nature of such reference? Second, in virtue of what should we take certain judgements as judgements about oneself as a self? Clearly written, with discussion of rival views, this book will be of interest to anyone working in the philosophy of mind and action."--Jacket.
