The paper discusses three main aspects of Richard Moran’s book Authority and Estrangement. Most prominently, it details indeterminacies and potential problems in Moran’s agency account of self-knowledge and offers a distinctive suggestion as to how we might best construe such an account. The paper also criticises Moran’s suggestion as to how we know our actions. It further aims to clarify Moran’s position on the nature of moral attitudes such as guilt and shame, and the ways in which they can be undermined by being the object of further attitudes of the subject.
