    Sense perception is one of our ways of knowing which is critical to our understanding of the world around us. The above quote by William Blake emphasizes how our perception can be easily altered and unclear to us. Blake’s comment was popular in his day and in ours, giving its name to one of the most celebrated rock groups in the world, The Doors. This prescribed title involves what we consider to be the “truth” and our five windows to the world, sight, smell, taste, touch, and hearing inform us constantly

    Sense perception allows us to select and interpret the information gathered through our senses, and with this information, gain knowledge of the world around us. Our five basic senses consist of sight, smell, hearing, touch and taste, however our senses may expand to include other aspects that we as humans find difficult to gauge, such as heat, pain, hunger and balance. Sense perception however, is not flawless but rather constrained by limitations and individual biasness, which pose as a weakness

    Humanity is blessed with at least five senses with which we observe and perceive our surroundings. Although our senses, and sense perceptions indeed are amazing, the knowledge gained by these faculties is sometimes misleading. The reason why our senses, at times, err is twofold, first the sensory organs we are endowed with are not entirely accurate, and are not equipped to perceive and measure all information. The second reason for errors in perception is that we all interpret the data we revived

    Perception is defined as the awareness of the world through the use of the five senses, but the concept of perception is often used to isolate one person’s point of view, so how reliable can perception be if no one person’s is exactly the same? The word perception itself is riddled with different, well, perceptions of its meaning. When some hear the word they might automatically think of it as something innately flawed, that can easily be fooled by illusions, while others may think of its usefulness

    Without the combined use of perception, emotion, logic, and language, my ability to pursue knowledge and gain an understanding of the world around me is limited. For me, measuring the success of the pursuit of knowledge is based on the fact that I am able to comprehend knowledge from multiple viewpoints, and not be restricted to a certain way of thinking. In Maslow’s quote, being only restricted to one tool, or way of knowing, is an issue for me to pursue knowledge because of the restrictions and

    Introduction Sense perception is the process in which the faculties of sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch, perceive an external stimulus of the knowledge about the outside world. Our senses act as an important source of knowledge about the world but instead of passively reflecting reality, it actively structures it. As such, understanding the world through sense perception is an active process that requires our brain to categorize and interpret what it is we are sensing. Yet, can the knowledge

    In adding sensory perceptions to this list, Descartes is moving away from the Aristotelian notion of the proper and common sensibles (those which are perceived by one or multiple senses, respectively). Instead, Descartes is suggesting that sense perception occurs within the mind and does not need any object present in the world in order to be experienced. Clearly, there is quite the divide between Aristotle and Descartes when it comes to this particular aspect of sense perception and how it relates

    Senseless: A False Sense of Perception I feel as though I have no choice but to be a skeptic about our ability to know the world on the sense experience given the information that is being presented. Our senses are touching, hearing, smelling and tasting, I believe it is quite possible that a person could think they see, touch, and smell something such as a glass of bear but there be no glass of beer present, therefore their perception of this glass of beer is false. There is a good possibility

    René Descartes Does Not Reject Sense Perception Some have suggested that René Descartes argues that sense perception relies on the mind rather than on the body. Descartes asserts that we can know our mind more readily than we can know our body. In support of this idea he gives the example of a piece of wax which is observed in its solid form and its liquid form. After pointing out the difficulties of relying on the senses of the physical body to understand the nature of the wax he makes this
