About the theme
The issue concerning the objectivity of content is central to philosophy. Burge (2010) has recently tried to ground the objectivity of content on an anti-individualistic conception of perceptual content. In this talk, I shall raise some worries and inadequacies about his psychology-based approach, and propose some ways to strengthen it with a focus on the neuroscientific study of consciousness and intentionality such as one undertaken by Northoff (2014a, b).
