Bill Brewer excels with his story of David Diegert that might quickly remind one of Vince Flynn's, Mitch Rapp or Lee Child's, Jack Reacher. But that's where the comparisons end because Brewer delivers a hard-hitting, punch-in-the-gut story that's just as much visceral as it is cerebral.

PERCEPTION AND ITS OBJECTS BILL BREWER To Anna Acknowledgements This book has been a long time in the writing and has gone through a number of very significant changes in both form and content over the course of its production. In this book I give what I now regard as correct priority to our basic perceptual experiential relation with unified physical objects themselves

Bill Brewer sets out an original view of the role of conscious experience in the acquisition of empirical knowledge. Most epistemology of perception takes a person's possession of beliefs about the mind-independent world for granted and goes on to ask what further conditions these beliefs must meet if they are to be cases of knowledge. Brewer argues that this approach is completely mistaken. the first book by an outstanding young philosopher. a striking new approach to epistemology. a contribution to cognitive science as well as philosophy. essential reading for all who work on perception. features a broad historical introduction to the issues discussed.

Bill Brewer presents an original view of the role of conscious experience in the acquisition of empirical knowledge. He argues that perceptual experiences must provide reasons for empirical beliefs if there are to be any determinate beliefs at all about particular objects in the world. This fresh approach to epistemology turns away from the search for necessary and sufficient conditions for knowledge and works instead from a theory of understanding in a particular area.

The issue of perceptual knowledge is difficult. This book provides us with a good discussion (and is often interesting) on this topic, which also has been recently discussed by McDowell, Peacocke, Heck, Putnam, Strawson, Stroud (Quest), S. Kelly, and McGinn, etc. One may also want to see Brewer's article in Boghossian, et. al., "New Essays...Apriori" (Oxford UP).
In P and R, Brewer provides more detailed arguments than McDowell does in his provacative M and W (often in agreement with him on conceptual content) and his prose style is much more clear (and correct) than Peacocke (who defends non-conceptual content).
Also, very much worth looking at is A. Brueckner's (UCSB) work on externalism (see Ludlow's anthology) (and Burge and Falvey/Owens).
I also recommend the recent dissertations and/or articles on this topic by S. D. Kelly (now at Princeton),Cheryl Chen (Brandeis), and Eddie Cushman (UCB veterans).
Brewer argues for: (C) "Perceptual experiences provide reasons for empirical beliefs," which seems harmless enough, but he gets to this conclusion by means of two controversial premises: (1) "The most basic beliefs about the spatial world have their contents only in virtue of their standing in certain relations with perceptual experiences," and (2) "Only reason-giving relations between perceptual experiences and beliefs could possibly serve the content-determining role required by (1)."
He has separate chapters that argue for (1) and (2)--Chapters 2, 3, and 5, but I think these respective arguments are a stretch. But definitely worth looking at.
The most interesting material here is his discussion on what he calls the "Strawson Argument" (Chapter 2.2, 3.1) and his coverage of externalism and a priori knowledge (chapter 8).
Overall, I recommend this text. It is a significant contribution to the field. I also recommend: MacDonald, Wright, et. al, Knowing our Own Minds (Oxford); Ludlow, Externalism and Self-Knowledge (CSLI); and DeRose, Skepticism (Oxford).
