Self-Consciousness and Objectivity

Front Cover
Harvard University Press, Jan 8, 2018 - Philosophy - 176 pages
Sebastian Rödl undermines a foundational dogma of contemporary philosophy: that knowledge, in order to be objective, must be knowledge of something that is as it is, independent of being known to be so. This profound work revives the thought that knowledge, precisely on account of being objective, is self-knowledge: knowledge knowing itself.
