Jan 2017 New publication : Silverman, D., Sensorimotor Theory and the Problems of Consciousness

in Journal of Consciousness Studies, Volume 24, Numbers 7-8, 2017, pp. 189-216(28)

The sensorimotor theory is an influential account of perception and phenomenal qualities that builds, in an empirically supported way, on the basic claim that conscious experience is best construed as an attribute of the whole embodied agent’s skill-driven interactions with the environment. This paper, in addition to situating the theory as a response to certain well-known problems of consciousness, develops a sensorimotor account of why we are perceptually conscious rather than not.
