Phenomenal Consciousness and Self-Awareness: Fully funded Postdoctoral position (100%)

Starting date: Mai 1, 2017


Summary of the research project

This project aims at integrating various fields of research within philosophy of mind, in particular issues about phenomenal consciousness and self-awareness. These systematically related issues are usually discussed in almost complete isolation from each other. Our work will explicitly address the following questions: What is the nature of our epistemic situation with respect to our own conscious states? What is the relation between phenomenal consciousness and self-awareness? Does the former necessarily involve the latter? Is there a sense in which we are aware of ourselves as experiencing subjects? If so, what is the nature of that awareness? What is the relation between the concepts we have of phenomenal kinds of experiences and the concept we have of ourselves as experiencing subjects? What is the basis of our understanding of what it is to be a conscious individual?
