What Does Experience Teach Us?
John Campbell and Quassim Cassam
Reviews and Awards
"It is only if we understand experience as representing mind-independent relaisty, Cassam argues, that we can understand how experiecne can ground our thought of the world as mind-independent. Berkeley's Puzzle contains extensive discussion of how these views differ, and substantive arguments on each side. Written in a clear and unfussy style, it is a major contribution to the current debate in the philosophy of perception between relational and representational views of perception" - Craig French, The Times Literary Supplement
"Campbell and Cassam each offer elegant "solutions" to Berkeley's puzzle" - Jane O'Grady, Times Higher Education
"... this book will prove very useful for advanced graduate students and faculty who do research on Berkeley, the history of empiricism, the theory of perception, and epistemology ... Recommended. Graduate students and researchers/faculty." - M. A. Michael, CHOICE
"Though there are many excellent discussions of relationalism and representationalism, I am unaware of any that is superior to this joint effort... Its discussions are guided by genuine insight about which philosophical questions are valuable to engage and their responses to these questions involve an unusually high clarity of thought and attention to detail. The result surpasses what either author would have achieved independently and should serve as a useful model for other philosophers to emulate." - Christopher Frey, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews Online
