Self-Knowledge Some Sceptical Issues

Abstract: The article examines some sceptical issues in the conditions of justification of self-knowledge, which accrue from the partial overlap between the subject and the object of cognition. After a review of types of beliefs, the thesis of privileged access to mental states is analysed with regard to the unity of the subject and the question of the identification of the subject in the beliefs based on external evidence.
Key words: self-knowledge, privileged access, self-consciousness, self-identification
