Talk about Looks
In this talk, I look at looks-talk — that is, the use of ‘looks’ in natural language — and connect it with some themes in the philosophy of perception such as the representational contents of
experience. Among other things, I argue that natural language ‘looks’ — in its so-called phenomenal use — is not a propositional attitude operator but has a very peculiar semantics, indeed.
