The Space of Seeing-In

Cavedon-Taylor, Dan (2011). The Space of Seeing-In. The British Journal of Aesthetics, 51(3) pp. 271–278.



Recent work on seeing-in has taken a pluralist turn. There is variety among pictures, so we should expect variety among seeing-in. Dominic Lopes’s taxonomy of seeing-in is arguably the most thorough that is currently available. Lopes identifies five varieties of seeing-in. In this paper I identify a sixth: pseudo-actualism. This paper improves our current best taxonomy of seeing-in.
