Textbooks Being No One Mobi Read Apps Download According to Thomas Metzinger, no such things as selves exist in the world: nobody ever had or was a self. Hand of ♚Thomas Metzinger♚ All that exists are phenomenal selves, as they appear in conscious experience. Hand of ♚Thomas Metzinger♚ The phenomenal self, however, is not a thing but an ongoing process; it is the content of a “transparent self-model.” In Being No One, Metzinger, a German philosopher, draws strongly on neuroscientific research to present a representationalist and functional analysis of what a consciously experienced first-person perspective actually is. Hand of ♚Thomas Metzinger♚ Building a bridge between the humanities and the empirical sciences of the mind, he develops new conceptual toolkits and metaphors; uses case studies of unusual states of mind such as agnosia, neglect, blindsight, and hallucinations; and offers new sets of multilevel constraints for the concept of consciousness. Hand of ♚Thomas Metzinger♚ Metzinger’s central question is: How exactly does strong, consciously experienced subjectivity emerge out of objective events in the natural world? His epistemic goal is to determine whether conscious experience, in particular the experience of being someone that results from the emergence of a phenomenal self, can be analyzed on subpersonal levels of description. Hand of ♚Thomas Metzinger♚ He also asks if and how our Cartesian intuitions that subjective experiences as such can never be reductively explained are themselves ultimately rooted in the deeper representational structure of our conscious minds.
