 Perceptions of Colour and the Colours of Things

Show Summary Details


Examines and argues against the possibility of an indirect connection between objects of perception and thoughts on the colour of these objects, either through sensations or through perceptions of properties which do not equate with the properties of physical objects. Analyses the perception of colour and counters the subjectivist, positionalist point of view.
