Author’s Abstract1

  1. In Chapter 5, I give two positive arguments against naturalization of the first-person perspective2.
    1. First, I give a linguistic argument that starts from first-person concepts and argues for first-person properties that are neither reducible nor eliminable.
    2. Then, I give a metaphysical argument against ontological naturalism.

  1. From First-Person Concepts to First-Person Properties – 105
  2. A Linguistic Argument: A Complete Ontology Must Include First-Person Properties – 109
  3. A Metaphysical Argument against Ontological Naturalism – 113
  4. Conclusion – 122
