There is more to sentience than sensory qualities. Even if there comes a day when all the conceptual tangles wrapped around the qualities of sensory experience have been resolved, the job of understanding sentience would still be only half done. Lurking beyond the thickets of qualia lies another problem that is just as big and nasty. So even after those thickets are cleared, philosophers still could not rest; they would still have work to do. They would still have gainful employment. To make this case this chapter explains how one might come to understand the qualities of sensory experience.
