Details

The second of three workshops will focus on the epistemic issues surrounding property perception:

Whatever role perceiving objects plays in anchoring thought about objects, we can ask: does property perception play a parallel role for our capacity to form perception-based thoughts about sensible properties, and is this the case for all or only some sensible properties?

If more is required of property perception—and many assume that it is—then this imposes substantive constraints on the right account of property perception. Yet if more is required, what is it about properties and, relatedly, perception-based thought about properties that imposes these demands?
