Show Summary Details


The goal of this short opening chapter is to provide an initial outline of the theory of knowledge of one's own thoughts and thought processes to be proposed and defended in the book. The main claims and commitments of the Interpretive Sensory-Access (ISA) theory are laid out and contrasted with traditional philosophical accounts. There is then a chapter-by-chapter guide to the overall structure of the book, indicating how the theory in question will be compared with its main competitors.
