Deceptions I 92
Seeing / Goodman: How can I see a bunch of molecules, without seeing a single one of them? - How could you say of me that I see a magnet? Or a poisonous mushroom? - It could be that someone asks me if I’ve seen the football coach in my audience. And I respond falsely to the negative. And even saw the entire audience.
I 107 ff
Perception / Goodman: improvises smooth transitions. Goodman: One could ask whether such improvisations are not even more peculiar to man than innate ideas. Virtually every clear case of visual motion perception depends on an abrupt change in color (no shades of gray).
