From the Notre Dame Philosophical Review: A review of Real Hallucinations: Psychiatric Illness, Intentionality, and the Interpersonal World (2017) by Matthew Ratcliffe.

How can we account for the fact that some people sense or hear voices that others do not hear, or that some people experience themselves as having thoughts yet are not thinking? How can we best understand what is entailed in the concept of a minimal self? While other writers have theorized about these subjects, Ratcliffe offers a unique and rich phenomenological approach to understanding verbal hallucinations (VH) and thought insertion (TI) that makes a brilliant and significant contribution to these conundrums.
