Although many important figures in the history of philosophy had something to say about perception, to keep this bibliography to a manageable length references to and discussion of historical works have not been included. For the same reason, there are no references to the plentiful empirical work that is relevant to the topic in many cases, references to relevant empirical work can be found in the bibliographies of the philosophy papers to which it is relevant.
This bibliography does not cover the epistemology of perception, which is usually dealt with as part of the theory of knowledge rather than the problem of perception. An excellent place to start is Crane , which provides a brief overview of the topic and a framework within which the subdivision of topics in this article can be understood. There are few recent general surveys or textbooks on the philosophy of perception, and often a good overview can be gained by reading one of the edited collections listed in this section. This section, however, provides a useful introduction to many of the issues.
Robinson is an excellent introduction to the problem of perception and defends a sense-datum view.
Maund focuses on the question of whether perception is direct or indirect. Fish is a very useful and up-to-date overview of the topics covered in this bibliography.
