Author’s Abstract1

  1. Chapters 9 & 10 ("Carruthers (Peter) - Dissociation Data") discuss the main predictions of inner sense theories. One concerns our capacities to monitor and control our own mental processes (often called "metacognition"), and another concerns the likely incidence of metacognitive capacities in non-human primates.
  2. These issues are discussed in Chapter 9, where it is shown that the evidence counts heavily against inner sense views, while vindicating the predictions made by the ISA account (as sketched in Section 2.42).
