References for the Unity of Consciousness

David asked where the Kant and Hasker passages came from with respect to the unity of consciousness argument, and I realized that I had forgotten to reference this. The Kant passage is from the Second Paralogism of the Critique of Pure Reason (Kemp Smith translation, St. Martin's) p. 335. The formal argument was generated by Paul Draper (who I think does not endorse it) but it encapsulates the argument as Hasker develops it in The Emergent Self, (New York: Cornell Universitiy Press, 1999), pp. 122-146.
