John Perry – “Thinking and Talking About the Self”

Written on May 29, 2009

John Perry gave the Howison Lecture at Berkeley last March & it is now available online.

Howison lecture description:

In his lecture, John Perry investigates two quite different ways of thinking of ourselves; one, that we express with the first person, that is a special way of considering ourselves; the other, for which we use our name, that allows us to think of ourselves more or less as others do. He will explore these two different ways of thinking, and talking, about ourselves, and draw some conclusions about the structure of thought and language.
