Perception, and other matters

13 Perception, and other matters

J. M. Hinton

Oxford University Press

This chapter takes a closer look at perception–illusion disjunctions and their constituent parts. The sense of ‘perception’ involved is examined in relation to belief and other matters. The chapter goes into detail about the constituent parts of perception–illusion disjunctions; first, the part about perception. Here the chapter has a case in point, where it is useful to consider a sentence in a non-assertive context. However it was beginning to say that there are some properties which the sentence ‘x perceives that f’ has, and which one can clearly see has when one considers it in the context of a perception–illusion disjunction. To give the properties names as a prelude to saying what they are: in this context the verb ‘to perceive’. The chapter further discusses the plainness, doxastic, and objective senses.

Keywords:   perception, illusion, perception–illusion disjunctions, belief, context, properties, plainness, objective, senses
