Color Ontology and Color Science ePub and PDF Available

Philosophers and scientists have long speculated about the nature of color. Atomists
such as Democritus thought color to be "conventional," not real; Galileo and other key figures of
the Scientific Revolution thought that it was an erroneous projection of our own sensations onto
external objects. More recently, philosophers have enriched the debate about color by aligning the
most advanced color science with the most sophisticated methods of analytical philosophy. In this
volume, leading scientists and philosophers examine new problems with new analytic tools,
considering such topics as the psychophysical measurement of color and its implications, the nature
of color experience in both normal color-perceivers and the color blind, and questions that arise
from what we now know about the neural processing of color information, color consciousness, and
color language. Taken together, these papers point toward a complete restructuring of current
orthodoxy concerning color experience and how it relates to objective reality. Kuehni, Jameson,
Mausfeld, and Niederee discuss how the traditional framework of a three-dimensional color space and
basic color terms is far too simple to capture the complexities of color experience. Clark and
MacLeod discuss the difficulties of a materialist account of color experience. Churchland, Cohen,
Matthen, and Westphal offer competing accounts of color ontology. Finally, Broackes and Byrne and
Hilbert discuss the phenomenology of color blindness.
