Response to Phil Gerrans

Abstract : Phil Gerrans comments on Proust's paper entitled "Thinking of oneself as the same" raise two points; one has to do with the value of sceptical arguments about self-knowledge, the other with what a self can know of him/herself. These two comments are discussed. It is shown first that metacognition operates on content as well as on vehicles, which leaves every replica with her own numerical identity. Second, the homuncular fallacy is discussed as part of a response to the second point.
