Do objects even exist, that is, as an object-in-itself? Or, is everything out there part of a perceptual world, and not actually part of a world that ‘exists’? When I see a green shirt, is it really ‘green’? Or am I simply perceiving something, then projecting what I understand as ‘greenness’ to the shirt? Do objects even have inherent qualities, or are all qualities given to the objects through our sensory engagements with them? This is a rant in question form, but I really just want to throw out some questions for everyone. I think these questions highlight the power and place of our perceptual faculties and how we make sense of the world.
