Reflecting the Mind: Indexicality and Quasi-Indexicality

Eros Corazza

Abstract

Indexicals (e.g.: ‘I’, ‘she’, ‘this’, ‘today’, ‘here’, etc.) designate something relative to the context in which they are used. This study shows how these expressions play a central role when dealing with such puzzling concepts as the nature of the self, the nature of perception, social interaction, psychological pathologies and psychological development.

Keywords: anaphora, cognition, context, indexicals, logophoric pronouns, pronouns, propositional attitudes, psychological pathologies, quasi-indicators, reference
