Second-person Issues in the Study of Consciousness
Evan Thompson, Editor
Second-person 'I–You' relations are central to human life yet have been
neglected in consciousness research. This book puts that right, and goes
further by including descriptions of animal 'person-to-person' interactions
from primatologists Barbara Smuts and Sue Savage-Rumbaugh. Other contributions
are drawn from fields as diverse as Japanese philosophy and Buddhist studies,
neurophysiology, phenomenology and neuropsychology – including clinical
studies on autism and face-recognition disorders. Originally published
as a special issue of the Journal of Consciousness Studies (Vol.8,
"I highly recommend the collection . . . should be looked at by anyone
who wants to think about what form a phenomenological contribution to
some of the problems studied by cognitive scientists might take." Bill
Wringe, Human Nature Review
"Interdisciplinary research on empathy is important both for theoretical
understanding of intersubjectivity and to meet practical goals such as
better physician-patient relationships. Between Ourselves has made solid
strides in both of these directions." Allison Barnes, Philosophical
