Philosophy of Photography - Realism and Transparency by Kane B

source: Kane B   2016年9月16日
This video examines Kendall Walton's transparency thesis, which claims that when we look at a photograph of an object, we do not simply see a representation of the object; rather we "see through" the photograph to the object itself. I consider (a) how transparency relates to the realism of photography, (b) Walton's arguments for transparency and (c) various criticisms of transparency, in particular focusing on the objection that Walton's view rests on a faulty account of perception.
