This article contrasts two different kinds of account of our knowledge of our own thoughts. According to standard theories, self-knowledge of at least a subset of thoughts is direct and non-interpretive. According to the alternative, which will be elaborated and defended here, self-knowledge results from turning our mindreading capacities on ourselves, relying on the same sensory channels that we employ for other-knowledge and utilizing many of the same sensory cues.

Abstract

This article contrasts two different kinds of account of our knowledge of our own thoughts. According to standard theories, self-knowledge of at least a subset of thoughts is direct and non-interpretive. According to the alternative, which will be elaborated and defended here, self-knowledge results from turning our mindreading capacities on ourselves, relying on the same sensory channels that we employ for other-knowledge and utilizing many of the same sensory cues.
