The ontology of perception

Liliana Albertazzi

pp. 177-206

The chapter deals with the ontology of pereption and presents the basis of a science of appearances. Even when current perceptual science deals with qualitative aspects of experience, it almost exclusively explains perceptions in terms of quantitatively understood stimuli. Given that almost no aspect of perception is quantitative in nature, a properly qualitative understanding of perceptual experience is needed. Accordingly, the chapter presents the main aspects of such a qualitative understanding of perception.
