McDowell is a prominent representative of this school, which is commonly known as ‘disjunctivism’. McDowell’s version of disjunctivism will form an important part of my own argument in this book, and I will explain and defend it primarily in Chapter 4. However, since the argument of Mind and World d is easier to grasp against the background of a general understanding of disjunctivism and how it differs from ‘interface’ conceptions of perception, we will now briefly turn to disjunctivism before we move on to the main argument of Mind and World, which is about the involvement of concepts in perceptual experience.

This means that we neverr mentally embrace objective facts in experience (such as the fact that a tomato is present). 16 This argument is, however, fallacious. From the fact that the bad case is subjectively indistinguishable from the good case it does not follow that the subject’s experiential intake is the same in both cases.
