Dr. Casey Doyle, a faculty of Social Science and Humanities at Parami University, has published a new paper titled "Listening to Algorithms: The Case of self-knowledge" in the European Journal of Philosophy. 


This paper begins with the thought that there is something out of place about offloading inquiry into one's own mind to AI. The paper's primary goal is to articulate the unease felt when considering cases of doing so. It draws a parallel between the use of algorithms in criminal law: in both cases, one feels entitled to be treated as an exception to a verdict made on the basis of a certain kind of evidence. Then, it identifies an account of first-person authority that can make good on this: agentialism. Thus, the paper constitutes an argument in favor of an agentialist treatment of self-knowledge and first-person authority.
