    This course aims at tracking the impact of the “I think” as a primordial anchor point inaugurated by René Descartes’ within three German philosophers: Immanuel Kant, Johann Gottlieb Fichte and Edmund Husserl. The questions the course raises are: As what do these authors conceive the ‘I’ and its relation to thinking? What role does it play in their respective philosophies? And how do their philosophies relate to each other when the ‘I think’ is taken as the focus of contrast? The course starts with reviewing the six meditations in Descartes Meditations on First Philosophy. In Kant, the course focuses on the first part of the Critique of Pure Reason, wherein the “I think” or transcendental apperception is called the “highest point” of transcendental philosophy. In Husserl, the course will first delve into the first four Cartesian Meditations to establish a background and then look at essential sections in other works of Husserl discussing the ‘I’. In Fichte, who outright began his philosophy with the I and its activity (Tathandlung) as its first principle, the course focuses of the beginning sections of the Science of Knowledge.

We will also give considerable attention to the different theories of emotions, such as the feeling theories, judgmental theories, perceptual theories, and attitudinal theories.

    This course is focused on Timothy williamson's book Knowledge and its Limits.This is the most important work in epistemology in the last three decades.In this book, Williamson argues for a number of theses that revolutionized contemporary epistemology. Some of these theses include:that knowledge is an unanalyzable mental state; that epistemic access to one's own mental states is far more limited that has been traditionally thought that evidence consists in what one knows; that knowledge is the norm of assertion.
