Subjectivism, physicalism or none of the above? Comments on Ross's The Location Problem for Color Subjectivism
Consciousness and Cognition 10 (1):94-104 (2001)
AbstractIn “The Location Problem for Color Subjectivism,” Peter Ross argues against what he calls subjectivism — the view that “colors are not describable in physical terms, ... [but are] mental processes or events of visual states” (2),1 and in favor of physicalism — a view according to which colors are “physical properties of physical objects, such as reﬂectance properties” (10). He rejects an argument that has been oﬀered in support of subjectivism, and argues that, since no form of subjectivism is able to account for our perception of color, we are better oﬀ adopting physicalism.
