Author’s Abstract1

  1. In Chapter 8 ("Baker (Lynne Rudder) - A Metaphysical Framework for the First-Person Perspective") and Chapter 9, I turn to the metaphysics of the first-person perspective.
  2. In Chapter 9, I describe some of the contributions to reality that the first-person perspective makes. Without first-person perspectives, there would be no persons, no agency, and no moral responsibility.
  3. Parts of this chapter call on "Baker (Lynne Rudder) - First-Personal Aspects of Agency" (2011).
