Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Search  
 
First person, philosophy: this is about the question, how far the internal states of a subject are only accessible for this subject. Approaches that focus on the language assume that the acquisition of public language is a precondition for this access. They further claim that the access is not different in principal from the acces we have to others. See also privileged access, introspection, subjectivity, objectivity.

Meaning / Putnam / Davidson: partly from learning situation ("natural history") - twin earth: identical psychological states, but different beliefs, reference and meaning - twin earth / Davidson: no threat to the authority of the first person - "to know the meaning" / Davidson: no internal state (but probably a psychological state), not what we identify when we ascribe beliefs - authority of the 1st person: can easily be applied to externally identifiable states.
