Abstract in another language

Influential views on self-knowledge presuppose that we cannot come to know a resistant belief in a first-personal way. Two theses support this supposition: (i) if a belief self-ascription is grounded in the evidence of the person holding the belief, it is third-personal and (ii) we cannot have first-personal knowledge of beliefs we do not control. I object to both of these theses and argue that we can introspect on beliefs of which we lack control even though we cannot assent to their content.
