Self-Knowledge, Perceptual Evidence and the Significance of Consciousness

What makes consciousness a distinctive source of knowledge? The answer is often thought to lie in the fact that the contents of consciousness are available to higher order reflection. A related, traditional view holds that one’s perceptual evidence sometimes consists in one’s conscious perceptual states. Against these views I argue that, in a rational human, higher order reflection is less sensitive than first order belief to the contents of conscious perception. Therefore the epistemic significance of consciousness lies in its first order cognitive role, and one’s perceptual evidence consists in objects of first order perceptual experience, not in perceptual states. Since this conclusion applies in cases of radical illusion, such as traditional sceptical scenarios, it also presents a challenge to the popular view about perceptual evidence is factive.
