This chapter attempted to characterize the nature of an agent's awareness. It argues that an agent's awareness is a familiar feature of active psychological phenomena rather than passive ones, and is therefore a feature of paradigm thoughts and utterances; an agent's awareness is an awareness we can have without conceptualizing or self-ascribing it; and that agent's awareness is a feature of thoughts and utterances that the thought or utterance has by virtue of its mode of occurrence.

Keywords:   agent's awareness, self-knowledge, first-order intentionalist approach, non-content-based account, self-awareness, control
