Some Thoughts About Hallucination, Self-Representation, and “There It Is”

Benj’s “There it is” is a characteristically original and wide-ranging exploration of the relationship between certain direct realist theories of perception and the nature of perceptual justification—with some formal semantics thrown in for good measure. Here I’ll focus on just one of the many topics about which Benj has something to say: his remarks on the topic of the relationship that must obtain between a perceptual state and a belief in order for the former to immediately justify the latter.
