Rezension: Lambert Wiesing not only provides an original and illuminating treatment of the core issues in the philosophy of perception he radically recasts the terms of the debate and extends the field of enquiry, including a thought-provoking discussion of the transformation brought about by the perception of images. It is a major achievement that this important book has now made been made available to English-speaking readers. -- Jason Gaiger, University of Oxford, UK With this book, Wiesing has set out an original and extremely provocative suggestion for rethinking perception- and consciousness theory from the beginning. It should be said that it is an enormously stimulating book, rich in ideas, subtle in its argumentation, and sometimes funny as well. Beyond this it is, with its confident polarisation of theses and its underlying phenomenological orientation, a daring work in the best sense. [Review of the original German edition]. -- Thorsten Streubel, in: Allgemeine Zeitschrift fur Philosophie, 2010 We are creatures of presence; through perception we are surrounded by the given presence of ourselves and our environment. It makes no sense to doubt it. Wiesing presents the background, implications and justification of this central idea with startling clarity and impressive breadth as well as argumentative stringency; almost as an aside, the reader gets not only brilliant miniatures of the history of theory-from perception theory to image theory-but a veritable introduction to phenomenology...at a minimum, Lambert Wiesing's book may be read as a new basic theory of the way we understand ourselves as perceiving beings. [Review of the original German edition]. -- Jan Urbich, Suddeutsche Zeitung, 2009 Writing with wonderful clarity, Wiesing illuminates and re-orientates our understanding of perception, self and world. He also re positions the role of image-perception, and our understanding of what constitutes an image, in this context. Highly recommended. -- Kathleen Lennon, Professor of Philosophy, University of Hull, UK This radical rethinking of the philosophy of perception fascinates by casting old issues in a new light and giving prominence to topics - such as the perception of images - that orthodox thinking is condemned to treat as marginal. The book is bold, original, full of challenging ideas and makes a powerful case for changing our approach to this central philosophical problem. -- Robert Hopkins, Professor of Philosophy, New York University USA Already in its original German version, Lambert Wiesing's The Philosophy of Perception has had an unusually deep and specific impact on contemporary philosophical discussions, both on the "analytic" and "continental" sides of the epistemological divide. In a present both desirous of a return to cognitive realism and with an awareness of its impossibility, this is the resonance of a book that, on the one side, posits "perception" as a reality, and, on the other, patiently unravels the challenging of this "reality" for the human mind. -- Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht, Albert Guerard Professor in Literature, Stanford University, USA Lambert Wiesing's The Philosophy of Perception is a revolutionary rethinking of the philosophy of perception and image perception. Employing skilful phenomenology and philosophy 'without models', Wiesing presents an uncompromising critique of established theories of perception and takes huge strides in a new direction. Embodiment and identity are among the topics transformed by examining the necessary a priori consequences of the reality of perception. The book contains invigorating argument and surprising developments on every page. It should be essential reading for anyone working in the philosophy of images. -- Dawn Wilson, Lecturer in Philosophy, University of Hull, UK Wiesing provides a subtle, original, and erudite assessment of the situation in contemporary philosophy of perception, along with a bold proposal for reorienting the field. Written in an inviting style-and nicely translated-this book reaches out both to phenomenologists and those unfamiliar with what phenomenology has to offer. Wiesing cares deeply about what philosophy is and ought to be, and anyone with similar concerns will find this an engaging read. -- John Kulvicki, Associate Professor of Philosophy, Dartmouth College, USA
