Pre-reflective ConsciousnessPre-reflective Consciousness – Sartre and contemporary philosophy of mind. Sofia Miguens, Gerhard Preyer and Clara Morando (eds.). London, Routledge, 2016. ISBN: 978-1-138-92581-6 (hardback); 978-1-315-68114-6 (ebook)

Pre-reflective Consciousness: Sartre and Contemporary Philosophy of Mind delves into the relations between the current debates on consciousness within analytical philosophy and the debates taking place in continental philosophy in the twentieth century and in particular within the work of Sartre. Examining the return of the problem of subjectivity in philosophy of mind and the idea that phenomenal consciousness could not be reduced to functional or cognitive properties this volume aims to rethink borders between what counts as ‘inner’ and ‘outer’ when the nature of the mental is at stake.
