Narrators and Comparators: The Architecture of Agentive Self-Awareness [Book Review]

Synthese 159 (3):475 - 491 (2007)
This paper contrasts two approaches to agentive self-awareness: a high-level, narrative-based account, and a low-level comparator-based account. We argue that an agent's narrative self-conception has a role to play in explaining their agentive judgments, but that agentive experiences are explained by low-level comparator mechanisms that are grounded in the very machinery responsible for action-production
