I know that a pig is present by seeing it, but how do I know that I see a pig? Surprisingly little attention has been paid to this difficult question. (Evans and Dretske are notable exceptions.) The chapter defends an answer to it.

Keywords: self-knowledge; seeing; vision; visual experience; transparency; Evans; Dretske; belief; illusions
