Thesis abstract: 

My thesis is an attempt to explore the experiential characteristics of the sense of self we each seem to have on the one hand and our sense of our bodies on the other. I distinguish these and analyse them in separation from each other and discuss which aspects of the sense of our bodies may be constitutive of our sense of self.
