Dissociations between Sensory and Presentational Phenomenology

Friday, 8 March 2024
7:15am ET, 12:15pm GMT, 1:15pm CET (NB: time different from usual!)

Abstract: A number of philosophers claim that visual experience has a peculiar phenomenal character that is “presentational”. This paper investigates the role of presentational phenomenology in two “non-standard” contexts; the context of psychopathology and the context of religious experience. I will argue that presentational phenomenology can be doubly-dissociated from sensory phenomenology; some psychopathological cases of derealization involve sensory phenomenology without presentational phenomenology, and some cases of religious experience (in particular the cases of non-sensory religious experience in the Lecture 3 of William James’ The Varieties of Religious Experience) involve presentational phenomenology without sensory phenomenology.
