Deflationary Self-Knowledge

Deflationary Self-Knowledge

(p.146) 7 Deflationary Self-Knowledge

André Gallois

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses interrelations between Moore's Paradox, self‐knowledge and knowledge of the self. One focus of the chapter is on a condition, sometimes called Transparency, said to govern conscious thought. This chapter argues that an individual who finds nothing amiss with Moore‐paradoxical assertions or thoughts is incapable of grasping Transparency. Moreover, the best explanation for that inability is that such an individual would lack a capacity, central to thinking, the chapter labels Augmentation. But, it argues, having Augmentation is related in a crucial way to consciousness of the self.

Keywords:   a priori, belief, justification, Moore's Paradox, rationality, self-knowledge, transparency of belief
