Abstract

This chapter lists the definitions of perception given by the classical Indian schools representing the three main theories of direct realism, representationalism, and phenomenalism. This is followed by a discussion of the controversial classical Indian epistemology issue-whether perception is conceptualized or not? Is the sensory core all there is to the content of a perceptual experience? Is the content of a perceptual experience is restricted to being unconceptualized (nirvikalpaka), or can any part of it be conceptualized (savikalpaka) as well?.
