Abstract

Knowledge-contentful and knowledge-free descriptors of features of objects and situations may behave the same way grammatically but they seem to refer to very different kinds of percept. As a result, psychologists have divided perception between the psychophysics of material qualities – ‘sensory’ features - and the recognition of meaningful attributes – ‘semantic’ features. This talk introduces a way of scaling all sensed material features and attributed semantic features on the same unit, thereby allowing measurement of causal interactions between the processes transmitting information through the mind about features of all types.
