[British, fl. 1995, Of Wadham College, Oxford. Then at London University, then Professor at Cambridge University.]

1994 Introduction to 'Self-Knowledge'
žI p.1 Knowledge of thoughts covers both their existence and their contents
žI p.4 Outer senses are as important as introspection in the acquisition of self-knowledge
žI p.7 Is there a mode of self-awareness that isn't perception, and could it give self-knowledge?
žI p.8 If we have a pain, we are strongly aware of the bodily self
žI p.10 We can't introspect ourselves as objects, because that would involve possible error
žII p.15 Neither self-consciousness nor self-reference require self-knowledge
