Kursusindhold
Perception is a central topic of philosophy for at least two reasons. First, it is intrinsically interesting in the way other mental phenomena (thought, desire, sensations) are, and perception is thus a core topic within the philosophy of mind. Second, perception is important to epistemology, in that it is traditionally thought to be the primary source of justification for our beliefs and judgments. Perception is also a topic that has received as much attention in the phenomenological literature as it has in analytic philosophy. This course has a twofold aim. First, it offers an introduction to phenomenological and analytic accounts of perceptual experience. Second, it offers an introduction to current debates about the justificatory role of perception.

Key philosophers discussed will include Husserl, Merleau-Ponty, Tim Crane, A. D. Smith, John McDowell, and Donald Davidson.
