The Subject of Experience

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the present view, which sees the subject of experience quintessentially as a concept-user. In order to understand that issue, it is suggested that a modified reading of Kant's ‘synthetic unity of apperception’ should be carried out. There are also implications for accounts of personal identity presented in the discussions in the chapter.

Keywords: present view; experience; concept-user; Kant; synthetic unity of apperception; personal identity
