This chapter develops an account of experience and knowledge that takes seriously the interdependence of our conceptions of the self and the world. It argues that without an adequate conception of the world, we cannot have an adequate conception of the self. And, conversely, without an adequate conception of the self, we cannot have an adequate conception of the world. We do not begin our inquiry with adequate conceptions of the self and the world; it is rather the goal of inquiry to furnish us with such conceptions. The account of experience and knowledge that respects these facts is given.

Keywords:   classical empiricism, Cartesianism, self, world
