Editorial Reviews


'Robinson presents ..[his].. argument, in both its constructive and critical aspects, with great skill. It is very valuable to have a defence of sense data by someone who is well acquainted with and has thought deeply about, recent criticisms and alternatives ... anyone interested in the philosophy of perception should read this book and consider it.' - Times Literary Supplement

'Howard Robinson's book brings boldly forward the challenges that have been mounting against one of the most - if not the most entrenched of received opinions, namely, the discountenancing of any notion of an internal sensory experience. An incisive and near-comprehensive survey of the opposing arguments from a phenomenalist position'

'It presents a battery of considerations which should provoke theorists who are dismissive of sense-datum theory to review the details of their position, and it helpfully brings together neglected material from the literature.' - Philosophical Quarterly

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Robinson offers a complete review of the major arguments against direct realism, advebialism, intentional theories and surveys the classic representational theories of the early empiricists. He concludes that a sense data theory (now unpopular with most philosophers) can answer the various problems which plague the other theories. Closely argued and needs attentive reading but not overly difficult to understand for someone with some prior philosphical readings. Though only an interested layman I highly recommend this book evemn though I lean toward direct realism myself. This book will make a great reference; for those interested in a contrary view I recommend David Kelly's "The Evidence of the Senses" a DR position. OLDROGER
