The phenomenality of the self, qua object of inner experience, is not a function of the corporeality of the person . . it is clear that the phenomenality thesis, as it stands in connection with Kant’s theory of inner sense, refers specifically to the mind’s knowledge of itself and its representations. (Allison, 269) Allison warns against thinking of the phenomenality of the self simply in terms of awareness of outer objects, as if self-awareness just involved being aware of one’s material and bodily attributes as the outer appearance of the self.

Where there is no intuition there can be no knowledge. Awareness of Oneself as ‘Appearance’ and Empirical Apperception Having made the case for the apperceptive nature of self-consciousness, and the purely formal character of the apperceptive ‘I,’ Kant also attempts to describe the empirical side of self-consciousness. Here he attempts to argue that the self can know itself as appearance by intuiting itself in inner sense. 19 The possibility of empirical apperception turns on the idea that the subject, as self-activity, can affect the mind and so give rise to an intuition of itself (B158–9).

From one perspective we can regard our bodies as objects (the objective body), and from the other, we live our bodies immediately and prereflectively (the phenomenal body). More importantly, in normal experience these two perspectives are integrated; they do not function dualistically. To see what this means, consider the case of Schneider. 21 Schneider was a man who, as a result of a cerebral injury, became almost entirely incapable of acting on the basis of abstract thought. For example, he could not touch a specified part of his body when asked to.
