Abstract and Keywords

This article argues in defence of the minimal self and discusses the phenomenological objection to the Buddhist no-self view. It considers the distinction made by Miri Albahari between two forms of the sense of body ownership: personal ownership and perspectival ownership. It suggests that there is an important contrast between this Buddhist conception and the phenomenological conception of nonegological consciousness as found by Edmund Husserl and Jean-Paul Sartre.

Keywords: minimal self, no-self, Buddhist view, Miri Albahari, body ownership, nonegological consciousness, Edmund Husserl, Jean-Paul Sartre
