Episode 138: Guest John Searle on Perception (Part One)

Episode 138: Guest John Searle on Perception (Part One)

We interview John about Seeing Things As They Are (2015). What is perception? Searle says that it's not a matter of seeing a representation which is then related to things in the real world. We see the actual objects, with no mediation. But then how can there be illusions? Well, it's complicated, but not too complicated, just some funny terminology that this episode will teach you.
