"This is a fine volume. Anyone who cares about understanding self-knowledge, consciousness, and the relationship between them will want to lay hold of a copy."--Matthew Boyle, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews "This volume, comprising specially commissioned papers by leading philosophers, represents some of the most rigorous philosophical thinking on consciousness and related issues ... Extensive references after each selection, informative footnotes, and a short index make this book required reading for all who are interested in the philosophical foundations of viable accounts of consciousness. Highly recommended."--H. Storl, CHOICE "The essays in Introspection and Consciousness make important contributions to the study of the formal structure of a theory of introspective justification." --Philosophical Psychology "This is an excellent collection of essays on introspection and consciousness...There is also an introduction where the editors explain the impetus for the collection and provide a helpful overview. The essays contain a wealth of new and challenging material sure to excite specialists and shape future research." -- The Philosophical Quarterly
