“WHY SENSORY EXPERIENCE CAN'T BE ESSENTIALLY REPRESENTATIONAL”

March 11th 2021, 15.00

 

Speaker: 

David Papineau – King’s College London

Abstract:

Representationalism about sensory experience might be intuitive, but it faces the metaphysical challenge of explaining why conscious character (what-it’s-likeness) and representational content (correctness conditions) should be metaphysically intertwined. I shall argue that neither naturalist representationalism (eg Tye or Dretske) nor phenomenal intentionalism has the resources to do this. Attempts to defend representationalism by appealing to “transparency” only deepen the difficulties. In truth, representational content is metaphysically incommensurate with conscious character
