“Introspection makes our conscious motives and strategies transparent to us, while we have no sure means of deciphering them in others. Yet we never genuinely know our true selves. We remain largely ignorant of the actual unconscious determinants of our behavior, and therefore we cannot accurately predict what our behavior will be in circumstances beyond the safety zone of our past experience. The Greek motto “Know thyself,” when applied to the minute details of our behavior, remains an inaccessible ideal. Our “self” is just a database that gets filled in through our social experiences, in the same format with which we attempt to understand other minds, and therefore it is just as likely to include glaring gaps, misunderstandings, and delusions.”
Stanislas Dehaene, Consciousness and the Brain: Deciphering How the Brain Codes Our Thoughts

“Science often progresses by carving out new distinctions that refine the fuzzy categories of natural language.”
Stanislas Dehaene, Consciousness and the Brain: Deciphering How the Brain Codes Our Thoughts

“I do not mean, of course, that we can always accurately express our conscious thoughts with Proustian accuracy. Consciousness overflows language: we perceive vastly more than we can describe.”
Stanislas Dehaene, Consciousness and the Brain: Deciphering How the Brain Codes Our Thoughts
