Abstract

This study provides an overview of the sensorimotor account of vision and visual con-sciousness. We retackle some challenging topics such as qualia, visual consciousness, and awareness. The pivotal role of the subjective perception of information in con-sciousness is discussed. It is argued that an individual, in the process of seeing, is aware of the abstract object once the object is presented to the visual system; other-wise, observers will be conscious by means of previously stored representations of ob-jects.
