Color has been a favorite example of philosophers ever since David Hume worried about the missing shade of blue, but most of their thought experiments, we can now see, have been misinformed. Thomson shows how current work in science on the nature of color and color vision transforms our philosophical vision of colors, clarifying (if not settling) new controversies while closing down old--and eternally tempting--confusions. Informed philosophical discussion about color begins here.Daniel C. Dennett, Tufts University
