AS.150.607 - Graduate Seminar: Knowledge and Perception

How does perception reveal the world, if it does? Why have philosophical reflections on perception often led to skepticism? For background, we will start with readings from Ayer and Austin (on the sense-datum theory), and Sellars (on the Myth of the Given). We will then spend time on contemporary "disjunctive" accounts of perceptual consciousness, with readings from McDowell, Travis and (possibly) others.
