"The Limits of Perceptual Phenomenal Content"

There is an ongoing debate in philosophy of mind and epistemology about whether perceptual experience only represents those “thin” features of our environment that are apprehended by our senses--colors, shapes, sounds, and so on--or whether, in addition to these, at least some perceptual experiences represent more complex, “thick” properties such as natural, artifactual, and social kinds.  In this talk, Forrest articulates and defends a novel argument against the thick view.
