Introspection and authoritative self-knowledge

Erkenntnis 67 (2):355-372 (2007)
Abstract
In this paper I outline and defend an introspectionist account of authoritative self-knowledge for a certain class of cases, ones in which a subject is both thinking and thinking about a current, conscious thought. My account is distinctive in a number of ways, one of which is that it is compatible with the truth of externalism
