Camouflaged Physical Objects: The Intentionality of Perception



Published 06-05-2006

The notion of "camouflage" offers a new way to articulate some central ideas of direct realism. Through a certain natural history, physical objects would be able to adopt as a "second skin" the qualitative appearances they have when they are perceived. This entails the rejection of the "things-having-effects-on-us" model for perception. The physical objects themselves would be crucially involved in the constitution of the intentionality of perception.
