Соліпсизм: межі очевидності «Я»
Languages of publication
The author analyzes the problem of solipsism from the viewpoint of grammatical criticism of this notion. He shows that self-consciousness is a result of self-description by consciousness of its own structure and does not precede it as the initial cause. The consideration of Cartesian and Kant’s approaches to the nature of subjectivity in solipsism proves that they took no heed to communicative peculiarity of “I”. Basing on the conception which is usually called impersonal or anonymous theory of consciousness the author shows that the disclosure of the solipsistic model requires to give up the identity of self-consciousness and the first person.
