I am currently reading Schröddinger's essay: Mind and Matter. But I am stuck on chapter 3. After reading it over and over I still can't understand his principle of objectivisation.
Has anyone understood it and if so can he or she explain it?
I am currently reading it in french so i cannot quote the text but, the passage I'm stuck on is when he describes his principle of objectivisation and when he says :"Nous reculons avec notre propre personne dans le rôle d'un spectateur qui n'appartient pas au monde, ce dernier devenant, par cette procédure même un monde objectif"
Here is my own bad english translation of this passage: We retreat with our own person, in the role of a spectator who does not belong to the world, becoming by the same procedure an objective world.
It's not that I don't understand the concept of it it's just that often Schrödinger is very profound but I feel like I'm missing something here.
