A New View of Seeing

(p.23) Chapter 2 A New View of Seeing
Why Red Doesn’t Sound Like a Bell

J. Kevin O’Regan

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents a new view of seeing. It begins with a discussion of vision and tactile perception, and then compares the experience of seeing with the experience of remembering. It argues that seeing seems more real to us than remembering or imagining because the activity of seeing involves four properties that provide it with its particular perceptual “presence”: richness, bodiliness, partial insubordinateness, and grabbiness.

Keywords:   vision, visual perception, seeing, remembering, tactile perception
