End Date: 4/21/2017End Time: 5:30 PM


GW Philosophy Department Presents:
2017 Thacher Lecture by Susanna Schellenberg

Perceptual Consciousness as a Mental Activity

"I argue that perceptual consciousness is constituted by a mental activity. The mental activity in question is the activity of employing perceptual capacities, such as discriminatory, selective capacities. This is a radical view, but I hope to make it plausible. In arguing for this mental activist view, I reject orthodox views on which perceptual consciousness is analyzed in terms of (sensory awareness relations to) peculiar entities, such as, phenomenal properties, external mind-independent properties, propositions, sense-data, qualia, or intentional objects."
