In “Truth and Rule-Following,” John Haugeland criticizes a wide swath of competing accounts of perceptual representation on the grounds that they cannot make room for the possibility of perceptual states that are functionally right but factually wrong. In this paper, we spell out what we take Haugeland’s criticism to involve by showing how it applies equally well to an account of perceptual representation that was published after Haugeland’s death: namely, the account of perceptual representation offered in Tyler Burge’s Origins of Objectivity (2010).

Keywords:   Tyler Burge, John Haugeland, Perceptual Constancies, Representation, Objectivity, Normativity
