Product description


Seeing Things As They Are is full of interesting ideas. It is engagingly written, and deals with big questions about the mind-world relations and the relation between the phenomenology and intentionality of perception. I recommned it to anyone interested in what makes perceptual contact with a mind-independent world possible. (Kirk Ludwig, The Philosophers' Magazine)

... offers a straightforward, realistic account of how one perceives objects and states of affairs ... Highly recommended. (Choice)

Searle's book is a wonderful addition to the philosophical discipline of perception, and a useful way for someone who is not well versed in the subject to receive and extensive overview of the historical arguments. The overarching thesis is a strong defense of Direct Realism that will inspire the reader to contemplate the ways they discern meaning through experience. (Tyler Campbell, Englewood Review of Books)
