Description
Each of us has a first person perspective on their mind and this perspective is crucial to understanding what a mind is. Each of us confronts questions about what is valuable and understanding this is crucial to understanding significant features of our moral lives. A certain representational structure sets so-called first person awareness apart from third person awareness. This lecture will bring out this structure and the importance of the first person in the philosophy of mind and ethics.
