;ental Self-Ascription / Evans: if one ascribes an opinion to oneself, then the view is, so to speak, and often literally is, directed outwards - to the world - we can do without the "inner view" - ment.s.a. is not infallible.
Evans: self-ascription of experience does not require any special skill of an inner sense - no disposition for cases of correct judgments, that guaranteed infallibility - information stance: with content: e.g. "as if a thousand tiny needles .." / without content: e.g., "pain", "itching"._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
