According to what we could call the Perceptual Account of Mindreading (PA), appropriately endowed observers are sometimes able to visually perceive that someone is angry. In this talk, I first explore the merits and limitations of the main strategies that have been employed to defend PA. Subsequently, I present and defend a version of PA, according to which some mental properties can be observational properties.
