Sny, świadomość i jaźń: Perspektywa filozoficzna

Translated title of the contribution: Dreaming, consciousness & the self: A philosophical perspective

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


This article outlines the state of research on dreams and dreaming. Windt proposes a new conceptual framework to describe conscious experiences while dreaming. Building on methodological and theoretical achievements in the natural sciences as well as philosophy, she indicates new directions for the development of a philosophical theory of dreamingand related concepts of wakefulness, consciousness, and self-consciousness. Windt discusses the phenomenology of dreaming as well as the relations between the sleeping physical body and the dream self, including the experience of being a bodily self in dreams. This allows her to explore how standard wakefulness and altered states of consciousness, including bodily illusions and presence in virtual reality, relate to dreams and dreaming.
