Contributions to this conference will examine questions such as: How can we best explain visual illusions that put perceiving at odds with cognising? Is perception distinct from other forms of cognition, such as imagination or hallucination? Are they distinct psychological kinds that carve a ‘joint in nature’? Does perception communicate freely with higher forms of cognition? Is the latter capable of informing the former? Do the newly minted predictive processing theories do away with the perception/cognition divide altogether? Are they compatible with and do they support traditional modular accounts of vision?
