Perspectives on Introspection and Self-Knowledge: a Workshop with Alex Byrne

July 3-4, 2014
University of Tuebingen

Alex Byrne (MIT) has made substantial and influential contributions to the philosophical debate concerning the nature of introspection, the peculiar and privileged access we have to our own mental states. Having defended an inferential account of introspection across several different mental states, including belief, desire, thought, intention, and perceptual experience, he has been developing a unified account of introspection across all accessible mental states. Alex Byrne is visiting the CIN Philosophy of Neuroscience Group and the Philosophisches Seminar, University of Tübingen, for a two-day workshop (3-4 July) to discuss his views on the nature of introspection, transparency, and self-knowledge.
