The Inconsistent Triad

The Inconsistent Triad

(p.1) 1 The Inconsistent Triad
Perception and its Objects

Bill Brewer (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

The dialectical framework for the whole discussion is set out as an inconsistent triad. (I) Physical objects are mind-independent. (II) Physical objects are the direct objects of perception. (III) The direct objects of perception are mind-dependent. Key terms are defined and the three claims are motivated and elaborated in the context of the early modern empiricist approach to the nature of perceptual experience and the arguments from illusion and hallucination. The contents of subsequent chapters are indicated.

Keywords:   physical object, mind-independent, direct object, early modern empiricism, Locke, Berkeley, illusion, hallucination
