Abstract

The article provides the state of the art on the debate about whether the semantics of 'look' statements commits us to any particular theory of perceptual experience. The debate began with Frank Jackson's argument that 'look' statements commit us to a sense-datum theory of perception. Thinkers from different camps have since then offered various rejoinders to Jackson's argument. Others have provided novel arguments from considerations of the semantics of 'look' to particular theories of perception. The article closes with an argument of this sort for a representational theory of perceptual experience.
