Self-ignorance: Towards an extension of the Austrian paradigm

Self-ignorance: Towards an extension of the Austrian paradigm This article argues for an extension of the Austrian paradigm of the ignorance of actors. The idea that will be defended here is that actors are not only confronted with their lack of knowledge of the other person but also with their lack of self-knowledge. From this perspective, the article seeks to understand the implications of this phenomenon in terms of infra-individual coordination and to account for the mental processes mobilized by the individual mind so as to deal with that self-ignorance.
