9780415999120: Philosophy of Perception: A Contemporary Introduction (Routledge Contemporary Introductions to Philosophy)

The philosophy of perception investigates the nature of our sensory experiences and their relation to reality. Raising questions about the conscious character of perceptual experiences, how they enable us to acquire knowledge of the world in which we live, and what exactly it is we are aware of when we hallucinate or dream, the philosophy of perception is a growing area of interest in metaphysics, epistemology, and philosophy of mind.


William Fish’s Philosophy of Perception introduces the subject thematically, setting out the major theories of perception together with their motivations and attendant problems. While providing historical background to debates in the field, this comprehensive overview focuses on recent presentations and defenses of the different theories, and looks beyond visual perception to take into account the role of other senses.

Topics covered include:

  • the phenomenal principle
  • perception and hallucination
  • perception and content
  • sense-data, adverbialism and idealism
  • disjunctivism and relationalism
  • intentionalism and combined theories
  • the nature of content
  • veridicality
  • perception and empirical science
  • non-visual perception.

With summaries and suggested further reading at the end of each chapter, this is an ideal introduction to the philosophy of perception.

About the Author:

William Fish is Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at Massey University, New Zealand.

Review:

'A comprehensive introduction to contemporary philosophy of perception, written in an admirably clear and engaging style ... It will fill a real gap in the existing literature ... Fish’s book presents a balanced account of the principal theories in the field, noting strengths and weaknesses, uncovering potentially problematic assumptions, and raising issues for further discussion – exactly what a text should do. I welcome the publication of this book. I will likely use it alone in my undergraduate courses, and paired with a selection of readings in graduate courses.'Frances Egan, Rutgers University, USA
