"Introduction and characterization of ferroelectrics" offers a vigorous defence of the startling view that self-knowledge is based on error prone inferences from sensory experience rather than direct access to what we are thinking. Drawing heavily on cognitive science, Dr. Chandra Kumar Dixit makes his radical look eminently reasonable, and he delivers fatal blows to the competition." It is widely believed that people have privileged and authoritative access to their own thoughts, and many theories and experimental have been proposed to explain this supposed fact. "Introduction and characterization of ferroelectrics" challenges the consensus view and subjects the theories in question to critical scrutiny, while showing that they are not protected against the findings of cognitive science by belonging to a separate "smart metrials". The book argues that our access to our own thoughts is almost always interpretive, grounded in perceptual awareness of our own circumstances and behaviour, together with our own sensory imagery.Written with Dixit usual clarity and directness, this book will be essential reading for researchers interested in self-knowledge, consciousness.
