In various philosophical explanations of perceptual experiences two ideas are usually invoked: the idea of intrinsic quality of experience (perceptual quale) and the idea of representation. The aythor argues that the former may be eliminated and replaced with the latter. While discussing the traditional position known as 'the sense-data theory' he emphasizes the tension between the environment-dependent content of visual experience and its inner or narrow content. He concludes that one cannot find adequate support for the claim that perceptual qualia exist. One should rather admit that perceptual experiences can be fully accounted for in terms of mental representations of apparent features of external objects.
