N2 - Suppose we know our own attitudes, e.g. judgments anddecisions, only by unconsciously interpreting ourselves. Would thisundermine the assumption that there are conscious attitudes?Carruthers (2011) has argued that if the mentioned view of selfknowledgeis combined with either of the two most commonapproaches to consciousness, i.e. the higher-order state account(Rosenthal, 1997; 2005; Lycan, 1996; Carruthers, 2000) or theglobal workspace theory (Baars, 1988; Dehaene and Naccache,2001), then the conjunction of these theories implies that there are noconscious attitudes. I shall show that Carruthers’ argument againstthe existence of conscious attitudes doesn’t succeed, and mentionstudies on autism and logical reasoning under cognitive load thatsuggest that there are conscious attitudes.
