In April 2016 Manchester eScholar was replaced by the University of Manchester’s new Research Information Management System, Pure. All scholarly work records and full-texts stored in Manchester eScholar were migrated to the new system prior to this transition. From August 2016 the University’s research outputs will be available to view and download via the new Research Portal. Until then the old eScholar content WILL BE TEMPORARILY available to search and browse via this archive.

Abstract

The authors in this collection pursue a number of questions concerning self-consciousness, self and consciousness. Although the essays range rather broadly, there is a good deal of unity. In her introduction Liu organises the chapters under three headings: the Humean denial of self-awareness, the issue of self-knowledge, and the nature of persons or selves. This is helpful although it is worth bearing in mind that some chapters fall under more than one heading (for example, Shoemaker) and some don't fall neatly under any (for example, O'Brien).
