Putting Illusions in Their Place
abstract &   & + info

An attempt will be made to define kinds of perceptual phenomena - especially illusions to give a structure for testing the appropriateness of explanations. This is a kind of experimental philosophy, relating illusory phenomena to physiology and cognitive brain processes. We end with relations between illusions and delusions.
