Self-Consciousness and Objectivity is a terrific book! It addresses the most essential questions about self-consciousness and its place in the world in an original and compelling way. Sebastian Rödl challenges central doctrines in semantics, epistemology, and philosophy of mind, providing a new perspective on entrenched lines of thought in contemporary philosophy. This book ought to be read widely.—Berislav Marušić, Brandeis University

It is an ancient idea that philosophy seeks self-understanding. In this splendid book, Sebastian Rödl thinks through exactly what this idea comes to, and shows it to have truly revolutionary consequences. On every page, the most fundamental issues are pursued at a remarkable level of insight and depth. The result is a transformative work of philosophy, which succeeds in opening up the vista of absolute idealism for a contemporary audience.—Adrian Haddock, University of Stirling
