Rich in precursors (Kant and Frege) and stimulated by Castaneda's study in the logic of self-consciousness and Shoemaker's seminal paper 'Self-reference and self-awareness', the work of the past thirty-five years on self-reference and self-awareness has generated a wealth of deep, sophisticated philosophy. This volume explores the historical anticipations in Kant and Frege, brings four classic contributions together in one place, and offers five new studies. (Series A)show more
