I am working towards a broadly Wittgensteinian critique of current debates in the philosophy of perception. It is broadly Wittgensteinian in that it doesn’t amount to a defence of a particular account of perception but instead critically assesses the motivations behind theories that, arguably, depart from the common-sense view of perception. For my purposes, those are the Sense Data and Representationalist theories. My primary focus is on the conception(s) of hallucinations that is used in their support. I also critically assess the notions of the content of perception and intentionality, and the debate on the cognitive penetrability of perception.
