Prelude: The New Philosophy of Vision
Traditional theories of perception treat sensation as an image projected from the state of sensory receptors; more recently, cognitive scientists have focussed on how it is the result of data extraction. There are philosophical problems about how to accommodate the new paradigm: notably how to describe perceptual content in such a way as to preserve the epistemic innocence and egocentric perspective of the perceiver. The way to address this problem is to look at how perception is instinctively used, in particular, how it is used in order to gain knowledge about the world.
