Lay Summary (Englisch)

Lay summary
Since the birth of modern philosophy there has been an emphasis on the metaphysical distinction between world and self. The aim of the project is not to investigate this distinction from the third person perspective, but to attempt to capture it from the first person perspective. We intend to study how subjects access and distinguish between the world, the body, and their own selves in experience.Among the objects of our experience, there are some that we come to regard as independent of ourselves. Developmental psychologists study how children come to conceive of objects as distinct from themselves. Cognitive psychologists investigate the pathologies of patients who come to conceive of parts of their own bodies as alien, and similar cases involving a diminished capacity to properly draw the boundary between oneself and the world. Philosophers and psychologists alike also examine the folk-psychological conceptual framework in terms of which we distinguish between elements in our psychological make-up that truly constitute who we are and those that are ultimately alien to us.The main hypothesis behind this project is that affective phenomena play a distinctive role in the subject's delineation of the relevant boundaries. In order to test this hypothesis, the project comprises three subprojects. The first one concerns the generic question of how we come to delineate between the self and the external world. The second one looks more specifically at how we trace a boundary between those elements of the external world that are parts of us (our own body) and other elements. The third one studies a similar question arising in the purely psychological realm regarding how we isolate within our psychological makeup those elements that are authentically our "selves".The common thread which binds the three subprojects together is the assumption, relevant in both psychology and in philosophy, that peculiar affective phenomena are fundamental to our understanding of how such self-conceptions are formed. Theorists appeal to peculiar feelings - a 'sense of reality' (cf. subproject A), or a 'sense of belonging' (subproject B), or self-reflective emotions (cf. subproject C) - to account for the many puzzles concerning how we make sense of our relationship with the outside world, with our own body, and with our own emotions and actions. Such appeals are symptomatic of the broader affective revolution which has swept psychology, cognitive science, and philosophy over the last few years. Our project aims to examine the viability of these affective approaches to the puzzles cited.
