Deceptions I 338
Deception/Feyerabend: For example, a moving pattern that has just come to a halt. Feyerabend: you see that it moves in the opposite direction, but without changing its position. The only phenomenologically correct description of this fact is "it moves in space, but it does not change its place" and this description is contradictory.
OwenVisFeyerabend: these are phenomena, not real events. FeyerabendVsOwen: that does not solve the difficulty. For if we introduce "seems", we have to put it at the beginning of the sentence: "it seems that to be moving without changing its place." ((s)> Sellars).
