"Vision sets out an original and provocative account of visual perception; advances important, and often devastating, criticisms of a wide range of familiar philosophical theses bearing on the character of perception; and does so in a way that makes evident his mastery of the territory."--John Heil, Davidson College
From the Back Cover
At one time the causal theory of perception was regarded as our last best hope of reliably connecting the subjective contents of perception to external reality. With the decline of the view that perception consists of subjective contents, thinkers have had to reconceive the options for explaining perception/world relations. In this break-through study, Gerald Vision proposes a new causal theory, one that engages provocatively with a species of direct realism and makes no use of the now discredited subjectivism. Both providing a powerful survey of debate in the philosophy of perception and taking the field in a brilliant new direction, Problems of Vision: Rethinking the Causal Theory of Perception makes invigorating reading for those trying to understand perception - philosophers, students of philosophy, and cognitive psychologists.
