Episode Info

Episode Info:

In today's episode we discuss the nature of introspection with Prof. Eric Schwitzgebel and his contention that we can never reliably grasp the true nature of our inner selves. We explore the inadequacies of our imaginary, emotional, and visual experience, the implications of these shortcomings for things like happiness and mental health, and whether or not introspection is something we can learn to do better. *** SUPPORT US ON PATREON *** http://patreon.com/mowe *** SHOW NOTES *** https://mowe.blog/podcast/how-little-thou-can-know-thyself/ *** BOOKS MENTIONED *** "A Theory of Jerks and Other Philosophical Misadventures" by Eric Schwitzgebel https://amzn.to/2UbGeWk "Perplexities of Consciousness" by Eric Schwitzgebel https://amzn.to/2U6SrLY "Describing Inner Experience?
