Product Description

Product Description

Santos takes as his starting point George Berkeley's insight that there cannot be an object without a perceiver - that to be is to be perceived. He then develops a naturalistic account in which this insight is the core element. This evolutionary account of the relationship between perceivers and the objects that they perceive entails that there are no objects without a perceiver. However, it also entails that unperceived 'objects' are not annihilated when unperceived. "The naturalistic account entails that all objects perceived by a perceiver only exist for that perceiver. This means that when a human perceiver perceives other humans these humans are delineated from their surroundings by the perceiver. In bringing the quality of figure to the perceptual experience the human perceiver is isolating the other humans as distinct objects which they wouldn't be if they weren't perceived as such. In an unperceived state other humans are part of the unperceived perceivable."
