Philosophical questions about perception, including: What happens when I see a tree? Does it cause there to be an image or "sense-datum" of a tree in my mind? If not, then how does the tree manage to look to me the way it does? What is the relation between the way the tree looks to me and what I believe about the tree? How do my senses give me knowledge about the tree? Core readings by Russell, Berkeley, Chisholm, Armstrong, Dretske, and Jackson.
