What is perceptual error?
In the philosophy of perception, that perceptual errors exist is most frequently regarded as a fundamental fact about perception which must be integrated into any coherent theory. But the position that the existence of perceptual errors ought not serve as a premise in an argument about the nature of perception, since any account of perceptual error presupposes a particular understanding of the nature of perception. In fact, any theory of perceptual error presupposes a particular model of consciousness, one in which there exists a possible correspondence relation between the objects of direct perception and external objects. In other words, the assumption that perceptual errors exist depends upon a representational model of consciousness, which may or may not accurate describe the functions of consciousness.
