Contents and Vehicles in Analog Perception


Jacob Beck


Sobre la base de la explicación de Christopher Peacocke sobre el contenido de la percepción analógica y mi propia explicación de los vehículos de la percepción analógica, defiendo tres tesis: que la percepción de magnitudes tiene a menudo contenidos analógicos; que la percepción de las magnitudes tiene a menudo vehículos analógicos; y que la primera afirmación es verdadera en virtud de la segunda, es decir, que los vehículos analógicos ayudan a fundamentar los contenidos analógicos.
