Disjunctivism (New Problems of Philosophy)

 
9780415686211: Disjunctivism (New Problems of Philosophy)

It is commonly held that the experiences involved in cases of perception, illusion and hallucination all have the same nature. Disjunctivists deny this. They maintain that the kind of experience you have when you perceive the world isn’t one you could be having if you were hallucinating. A number of important debates in the philosophy of mind and epistemology turn on the question of whether this disjunctivist view is tenable.

This is the first book-length introduction to this contested issue. Matthew Soteriou explains the accounts of perception that disjunctivists seek to defend, such as naïve realism, and the accounts to which they are opposed, such as sense-datum theories and representationalist theories. He goes on to introduce and assess key questions that arise in these debates:

  • Is disjunctivism consistent with what has been established by the science of perception?
  • Does introspective reflection support naïve realism?
  • Can disjunctivism be motivated by appeal to the role that perception plays in enabling us to think demonstratively about mind-independent objects and qualities in our environment?
  • Does disjunctivism offer the best account of perceptual knowledge?
  • What can disjunctivists say about the nature of hallucination and illusion?

Including chapter summaries, annotated further reading and a glossary, this book is an ideal starting point for anyone studying disjunctivism for the first time, as well as for more advanced students and researchers.

About the Author:

Matthew Soteriou is a professor of Philosophy at the University of Warwick, UK. He is the author of The Mind’s Construction: The Ontology of Mind and Mental Action (2013), and co-editor (with Lucy O’Brien) of Mental Actions (2009).

Review:

'... Soteriou carefully lays out the motivations behind disjunctive accounts of perceptual experience and discusses in detail their contribution to advancing traditional and current debates about the nature and role of perception. ... [The book] offers the first systematic and in-depth introduction to the central themes and protagonists of one of the most controversial and debated theories of perception of the past decades. Postgraduate and advanced undergraduate students will benefit from the book both as a standalone overview of disjunctivism and as critical companion to some of its central texts. ... More experienced researchers will also benefit from Soteriou’s analysis of a number of controversial issues at the focus of current debates on disjunctivism ... .' - Simone Marini, International Journal of Philosophical Studies

'Disjunctivism is a limpid, comprehensive, and authoritative introduction to a central topic in the philosophy of perception. Students can’t do better than start with Soteriou’s book, and specialists will also find it invaluable.' - Alex Byrne, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA

'How should illusions and hallucinations shape our theory of perception? Soteriou guides us skillfully through the depths of this question, and brings to life philosophers' attempts to understand our most fundamental connection with reality. This book is an insightful introduction to the philosophy of perception.' - Susanna Siegel, Harvard University, USA

'An outstanding example of philosophical writing. Soteriou examines in a sophisticated yet clear way the current discussions of disjunctivism, putting the view into complex dialectical relation with sense-data and intentionalist accounts of perception. If one wants to understand contemporary debates in the philosophy of perception one could not do better than to read this book.' - Steven Levine, University of Massachusetts, Boston, USA
