About the Authors
  • Immunity to error through misidentification is recognised as an important feature of certain kinds of first-person judgments, as well as arguably being a feature of other indexical or demonstrative judgments. In this collection of newly commissioned essays, the contributors present a variety of approaches to it, engaging with historical and empirical aspects of the subject as well as contemporary philosophical work. It is the first collection of essays devoted exclusively to the topic and will be essential reading for anyone interested in philosophical work on the self, first-person thought or indexical thought more generally.

    • Examines the issues from a variety of perspectives, including historical and empirical
    • Broadens current literature on topic and provides ideas for further work
    • Contributions from a variety of eminent authors

    Reviews & endorsements

    "… [I] highly recommend Immunity to Error through Misidentification to those interested in this topic, and I consider it essential reading to those who follow and participate in recent discussions in self-knowledge."
    George Lăzăroiu, Review of Contemporary Philosophy

    "This excellent volume offers thirteen new essays on IEM, which collectively attempt to get clearer on the nature and scope of the phenomenon … the volume as a whole stands as an important contribution to scholarship on immunity to error through misidentification and neighbouring philosophical questions. It will no doubt be a major source of ideas and inspiration for future work on these issues."
