Semantics & Phenomenology of I

Summary of the Book

The book addresses itself to the question 'does one's expression of self-consciousness consist in using language with meaning? or 'does one phenomenalize the use of I in expressing one's self-consciousness? How would such phenomenalizing give a common space to the speaker of I and his hearer?' Again, 'does one 'ascribe' – a la Strawson self-consciousness to one self?' To all these questions, the book tries to find out answers from the point of view of Professor K.C. Bhattacharyya's Philosophy of the Subject. The probable answers of these questions may be useful not only for the philosophers, but intellectuals belonging to the field of literature, religion and other social sciences.
