Abstract: Examines the ontological feature of subjectivity, including how conscious brain states and processes are themselves objects of consciousness in J. R. Searle's bookThe Rediscovery of the Mind(1992). The article also discusses why Searle holds that the 1st person features of conscious brain states and processes must be distinct from all 3rd-person features and Searle's claim that no nonconscious mental state possesses intentionality since it is not conscious.
