Self-Knowledge as Self-Cognizing
This chapter points us in a third direction for coming to terms with self-knowledge. The idea here is, in a sense, simpler than that in the preceding chapter: Self-directed cognitions (or self-directed attention) will be removed from their introspective mystique and placed in a field that we can study empirically. Interestingly, the systematic study of self-cognizing has a long tradition. The tradition has sometimes been broken by decades, but nonetheless, it has a certain continuity. Our look at the topic begins with some ideas that were formulated before the turn of the century.
