Bodily Immunity to Error

Document Type


Publication Date



Frederique de Vignemont's lecture considers the question 'Are bodily self-ascriptions immune to error through misidentification?' According to the classic view, one cannot be mistaken about whose body part it is when experiencing them on the basis of body senses. de Vignemont will consider two putative objections to this 'bodily immunity.'

This lecture took place on Sept. 16, 2011 at The University of Western Ontario as part of the Rotman Institute of Philosophy Speaker Series.
