What It Is Like To Perceive

Direct Realism and the Phenomenal Character of Perception

J. Christopher Maloney

  • Proposes a strikingly original naturalistic theory of the phenomenal character of conscious perceptual experience
  • Account is compatible with the foundations of cognitive science according to which all thought is mental representation
  • Endorses and exploits the idea that the perceptive mind is an extended mind
