This first chapter introduces the main argument of the book and locates my position relative to existing approaches in the philosophy of psychology. The chapter includes a discussion of mental architecture and a discussion of earlier attempts to link visual experience with models from cognitive neuroscience. The conclusion of the main argument is that visual perception is an ongoing process of anticipation and fulfilment.

Keywords:   perceptual experience, action/perception cycle, classical cognitive science, neuroscience, David Marr
