Sensation and perception

Phenomenology, or phenomenalism, or the idea that the mind is the center of all things knowable, is analogous to saying that the only thing that human beings can know and indeed the only thing that constitutes the criteria for truth, is the sensor.

Phenomenology or Phenoumenology?

Sensation and perception are separate issues. I can go blind from damage to my eyes or nerves in between but my perceptive powers remain intact.

Your eyes do not perceive; they sense. It is the brain does the perceiving.

(Note: I have changed the titles of each reply but have kept the links to the page reblogged. The relevant quote I have also changed to. I do this by copying the relevant portion before hitting the “reblog” button then replacing the quoted part. This seems more helpful to the flow of discussion.)
