Bilgrami’s book is a deep and painstaking pursuit of a project spanning some of the largest themes in philosophy, showing how they might bear on self-knowledge. Were one inclined to see self-knowledge as an isolated issue, this book is a great antidote.—Krista Lawlor, Mind

Bilgrami’s book provides many interesting arguments woven together in an intricate approach to the notion of self-knowledge, and it provides an important and careful account of a normative and anti-naturalist approach to agency and intentionality.—Markus Schlosser, Philosophical Quarterly

This is a distinctive and original treatment which covers an impressive sweep of philosophical ground, makes many original and surprising connections, and creates a whole new framework for thinking about self-knowledge and the philosophical landscape around it.—Crispin Wright, Professor of Logic and Metaphysics and Wardlaw Professor, University of St Andrews

We asked him about his impassioned new book: why he wrote it, how it’s optimistic, and what we need to do to continue making progress on creating an equitable world.
