Objectivity Frank I 700
Objectivity/Burge: We usually consider perception knowledge to be objective (see above).
It is important to consider two objectivities:
Fra I 701
a) causal relations: we believe that there is no necessary connection here ((s) otherwise knowledge a priori).
Any perception could also have been a deception.
Normative aspect of perception:
Def "Gross Errors"/Burge: not from any kind of carelessness, deficiency or irrationality, it may be that the perception is not true, without something being wrong with the person. Gross errors depend on the independence of nature from how we conceive and perceive it, and on the contingency of our causal relations.
Causal: necessarily "that", but accidentally "like".
(b) Perceptual knowledge is objective in a second sense: in relation to the ratio of the perceptions of the same object by different persons.
Frank I 702
Although they must be persons, who make empirical determinations, it is not certain persons who make these determinations. (s) "that", not "which".)
