Two senses for "givenness of consciousness'

Dorothée Legrand

pp. 89-94

The notion of "givenness of consciousness' needs further elucidation. On the one hand, I agree with Lyyra (this volume) that one sense for "givenness of consciousness' is not enough to account for consciousness and self-consciousness. On the other hand, I will argue that Lyyra's paper is problematic precisely because he fails to consider one basic sense for "givenness of consciousness'. Lyyra and I thus agree that there must be (at least) two senses for "givenness of consciousness'; we disagree, however about which modes of givenness are involved.
