Series of papers on self-knowledge: I have been investigating on self-knowledge since my PhD dissertation, going through the main debates in the field: the compatibilist debate between externalism and self-knowledge, critical assessment of transparency accounts of self-knowledge, and self-knowledge of recalcitrant cognitions.
Future agenda: My objective in the following years is to elaborate a particular picture of self-knowledge that explains both our basic self-knowledge (that is exemplified by cogito judgments) as well as our more substantial self-knowledge that involves self-reflection. The debate between different models of self-knowledge originating in the late nineties has focused on how to explain authoritative knowledge of very simple mental states. For example, how can I know directly and authoritatively that I believe it is raining (when I do believe that it is raining)? However, in recent years, an increasing number of philosophers have noticed that the topic of self-knowledge deserves a broader treatment. I am sympathetic to such a reorientation of our philosophical agenda. In particular, I want to understand the connections between our capacity for critical self-reflection, the type of self-knowledge generated when we employ such a capacity, and the immediacy by which we know certain states of our minds.
