Recent philosophical investigation on perception has often focused on perception of objects. When attention is given to the perception of properties it is often in the context of local debates; e.g. whether high-level properties feature in the content of perception.
By contrast, we aim to reveal property perception’s importance to a general account of perception by identifying and addressing these puzzles about property perception.
The aim of the project is to put together a team of investigators with complementary expertise, and illuminate property perception simultaneously from three angles:
the metaphysics of properties,
our capacity for thought and knowledge of properties,
the nature of perception.
