Naturalism and the First-Person Perspective

Lynne Rudder Baker

  • Sets out the claims of main varieties of scientific naturalism.
  • Explores the shortcomings of treatment of first-person phenomena by important philosophers (David Lewis, Daniel Dennett, Thomas Metzinger, John Perry).
  • Develops an original nonCartesian view of the first-person perspective that has two-stages: a rudimentary stage enjoyed by human infants and nonhuman animals and a robust stage enjoyed by language-users.
  • Incorporates original accounts of personal identity, intentional causation and agency.
