Prior to Equal and Unequal: What Phenomenology Can Tell Us About Perception

Prior to Equal and Unequal: What Phenomenology Can Tell Us About Perception

Stephan Käufer

John Williamson Nevin Memorial Professor of Philosophy

We often don’t see what we think we see. Drawing on psychology, art, the history of philosophy, optical illusions, and examples from ordinary experiences, the philosophical movement known as phenomenology has pointed out some surprising features of our visual experience and challenged some basic assumptions about vision.  In doing so it produced an increasingly influential framework for understanding perception.

This event is sponsored by the Office of the Provost.
