This chapter shows that the account of picture perception and pictorial content sheds light on the debate between the two most popular theories of picture perception: the recognition theory due to Flint Schier and Dominic Lopes, and the experienced resemblance view due to Robert Hopkins. Though the present account sides with Lopes overall, Hopkins has captured something important about how we come to know pictures’ contents.

Keywords:   Hopkins, Lopes, Schier, recognition, experienced resemblance, perception, outline shape, psychological priority, epistemological priority
