Self-Deception, Self-Confrontation, and Consciousness

  • Harold A. Sackeim
  • Ruben C. Gur


These comments were made by Colin Cherry in a discussion of the mind-body question. However, the significance of Cherry’s remarks may be more general. A peculiar characteristic of the study of mind and, therefore, the discipline of psychology is that the study is necessarily self-reflective. Whether one examines observable behavior or develops theoritical models of contents of the “black box,” consciousness is employed to investigate the produscts of consciousness. In this sense, like the puppy, the psychologist is self-confronted; the mind observes and attempts to understand the mind.
