Non-Reflective Self-Awareness Towards a 'Situated' Account
After some preliminary distinctions, this paper will discuss the merits of higher-order representational theory (HORT) and same-order (representational) theory. A distinction will be introduced between a (purely) intrinsic conception of consciousness (SOIT) and a representational variant
(SORT). It will be argued that the SOIT account of 'non-reflective self-awareness' can be applied to understanding aspects of psychopathology. However, a closer look at specific aspects of schizophrenic experience reveals that we might need to widen the scope of and 'situate'
the SOIT of non-reflective selfawareness.
