Qualities and their Places

Show Summary Details


The machinery for analysing sensory qualities and producing a multidimensional ordering of their similarities — a ‘quality space’ — seems relatively well developed and robust. This chapter attempts to throw a wooden shoe into the works by showing that even when that task is done there are aspects of sentience that remain untouched.

Keywords: space; sentience; brain; spatial qualia

Chapter.  19160 words.
