The topic of introspection stands at the interface between questions in epistemology about the nature of self-knowledge and questions in the philosophy of mind about the nature of consciousness. What is the nature of introspection such that it provides us with a distinctive way of knowing about our own conscious mental states? And what is the nature of consciousness such that we can know about our own conscious mental states by introspection? How should we understand the relationship between consciousness and introspective self-knowledge? Should we explain consciousness in terms of introspective self-knowledge or vice versa? Until recently, questions in epistemology and the philosophy of mind were pursued largely in isolation from one another. This volume aims to integrate these two lines of research by bringing together fourteen new essays and one reprinted essay on the relationship between introspection, self-knowledge, and consciousness.

MEDIA REVIEWS
an excellent collection of essays on introspection and consciousness ... The essays contain a wealth of new and challenging material sure to excite specialists and shape future research * Michael Roche and William Roche, The Philosophical Quartely *
Anyone interested in [introspection] should read this volume. But be warned; although the writing is of a high standard and refreshingly free from unnecessary jargon, the book is demanding. The editors have, though, been kind to us. The introduction is outstanding. * Frank Jackson, Australian Book Review *
