This course is an advanced introduction to the philosophy of perception. Questions to be explored include: What are we aware of when we hallucinate? And what are we aware of when we have non-hallucinatory, veridical perceptions? Do we always directly experience intermediaries between ourselves and objects in our external environment? Or is there some interesting sense in which we can “directly” perceive external objects? In what ways do our perceptions depend on our beliefs? And in what ways do our beliefs depend on our perceptions? We will mostly read contemporary philosophical literature, but we will make some contact with both classical texts and empirical research.
