Ignorance and Imagination

Daniel Stoljar

Oxford University Press

This chapter proceeds by pointing out that the epistemic view is known to be correct for older philosophical problems that are structurally analogous to the logical problem, problems which concern not the phenomenal character of experience but the intellectual character of thought and the chemical features of physical objects. The suggestion of the chapter is that these historical cases should be viewed as a guide to our present situation.

Keywords:   phenomenal character, intellectual character, linguistic competence
