In this paper, we shall take into consideration the notion of pre-reflective self-consciousness, also known as minimal self, within Zahavi and Gallagher’s theory of phenomenological mind. Following Husserl’s analysis of the inner-time consciousness, we will find out ontological inconsistencies concerning Zahavi and Gallagher’s attempts to prove the existence of the minimal self. Despite inconsistencies, we will try to show that the phenomenological approach is still a sound proposal to the extent that it suggests a kind of subjectivity that is relevant to cognitive sciences developments.
