Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses some concluding comments on the philosophical notion. However, it is not a question, any answer to which merely expresses a preference for one way of putting something, as against another way of putting the same thing. To call the claim that there are E-reports unwarranted, and to take the same adverse view of the claim that there are unreportable events which E-reports would report if there were E-reports, is to resist what seems like part of a whole way of thinking. If this is indeed what it is, then the scrutiny of the rest of that way of thinking would be an interesting way of broadening the question. A different way of broadening it would be to expand the chapter's limited taxonomy of the visible in order to treat generally of vision, or sense-perception.
