I'm reading a dissertation on philosophy of perception and the main subject is the representationalism vs. relationalism debate. I find it hard to follow this discussion when it's not anchored in more specific details about how perceptual mechanisms work in embodied beings. Without this basis, I don't see how to assess whether any of these positions are reasonable or not.

Hey all, I'm a philosopher working on epistemology, philosophy of cognitive sciences, enativism & ecological psychology, specially interested in issues related to perception and cognition in general. I'm a professor at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, in Brazil.
