    Caspar Hare makes an original and compelling case for ""egocentric presentism,"" a view about the nature of first-person experience, about what happens when we see things from our own particular point of view. A natural thought about our first-person experience is that ""all and only the things of which I am aware are present to me."" Hare, however, goes one step further and claims, counterintuitively, that the thought should instead be that ""all and only the things of which I am aware are present."" There is, in other words, something unique about me and the things of which I am aware.
