Pre-reflective Consciousness: Sartre and Contemporary Philosophy of Mind delves into the relationship between the current analytical debates on consciousness and the debates that took place within continental philosophy in the twentieth century and in particular around the time of Sartre and within his seminal works.

Examining the return of the problem of subjectivity in philosophy of mind and the idea that phenomenal consciousness could not be reduced to functional or cognitive properties, this volume includes twenty-two unique contributions from leading scholars in the field. Asking questions such as:

Why we should think that self-consciousness is non-reflective?Is subjectivity first-personal? Does consciousness necessitate self-awareness?Do we need pre-reflective self-consciousness?Are ego-disorders in psychosis a dysfunction of pre-reflective self-awareness?How does the Cartesian duality between body and mind fit into Sartre's conceptions of consciousness?

MEDIA REVIEWS

`This wide-ranging collection of essays by philosophers of mind across the Continent and the Anglophone world is inspired by Sartre's difficult but fecund doctrine of the pre-reflective cogito. Thanks to this book, the study of human consciousness may just return to where it belongs - fundamental ontology.'
Joseph K. Schear, University of Oxford, UK

`This excellent volume marks the long-overdue recognition of the originality and subtlety of Sartre's contributions to the philosophy of consciousness. The essays are of high quality and the collection as a whole should be of great interest to anyone working on the phenomenology and ontology of consciousness.'
Peter Poellner, University of Warwick, UK
