Illusions, meta-perception and disjunctivism


March 3 MON — 12.30-14.30

Sala Riunioni — Direzione del Dipartimento (Via Festa del Perdono 7, Milano)

Abstract: When it comes to deal with perceptual illusions, the disjunctivist theory of perception faces some problems, mainly because of its close relationship with naive realism, that is, roughly speaking, with the idea that only in veridical cases the subject is genuinely in perceptual contact with the objects of the world and their features. In my presentation, I will argue that a new notion of phenomenal character based on what Dokic and Martin called meta-perceptual feelings and affective phenomenology can help to specify and integrate the original insight of naive realism in order to make Disjunctivism more rigorous in accounting for similarities and differences between veridical perceptions and illusions.
