The Sensorimotor Approach to Color
The previous chapters have sketched a “sensorimotor” theory of feel in which consciously feeling something involves a self having conscious access to the fact that it is currently engaged in interacting with the environment in a way that obeys certain sensorimotor laws. The particular quality of a given feel is determined by the laws that characterize the sensorimotor interaction involved. This idea was illustrated in the previous chapter using the examples of sponge squishing and Porsche driving. This chapter shows how the approach can deal with what philosophers consider to be the prototypical feel, namely the feel of color.
