Attention and Perceptual Activity Workshop

As well as passive perceptual events there are perceptual activities, such as watching, looking and perceptual attending. This one-day workshop in the philosophy of perception brings together researchers for a day of papers and discussion focusing on the nature of perceptual attention and activity, and the significance of these notions for the philosophy of mind, action and epistemology.
