Hi Russell, I will write more on Strawson’s idea, but for now I would like to point out that both Nagel and Strawson have good ideas which are discussed in that paper http://www.lrb.co.uk/v31/n21/thomas-nagel/the-i-in-me, but each is focusing on a different feature. More on this soon.

But I don't want to discourage you. Keep at it - maybe eventually some formulation will make sense to me. I found a lot of things fell into place about Bruno's ideas in his book "Le secret de l'amibe", which I had found puzzling earlier. Somehow, the context made more sense, but then it was the third time he'd written a book on the subject. Also keep at criticising my ideas - any well-focussed criticism of those will get my attention :). -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
