Origins of Some Representational Categories

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses some relatively basic sorts of perceptual attribution: body, numerosity, spatial relations, and temporal relations. It elaborates accounts of constitutive conditions for having each of these four types of representation. It also discusses the form and content of these types, and whether each type is constitutive to perceptual representation. These accounts further develop the notions perception and representation.

Keywords: perception attribution; representation; body; numerosity; spatial relations; temporal relations
