(p.126) 9 Echoes

Casey O'Callaghan (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

The event theory nonetheless owes an account of echoes and echo experiences. Though sounds do not travel, echoes are not distinct from primary sounds. Echo experiences are illusory experiences of ordinary primary sounds. Echo experiences involve spatial, temporal, and qualitative illusions. Such illusions, however, are no more problematic than those that attend seeing objects with mirrors. Nonetheless, we should not accept that echoes are images.

Keywords:   mirrors, images, illusion, primary sounds
