(Sensation). - Anders: E.g. Rabbit-Duck-Head: the network of lines does not change, therefore the perception theorists might argue that there are two representational components: a) the lines, b) Rabbit Duck Head - Perception Theory: Translation variant: The missing properties must be introduced into appropriate statements. - PeacockeVs: that would only provide a priori knowledge, not empirical, because the postulated experience type could not go wrong. - Vs added terms: they do not have to be available to the naive person, so they do not change the truth > Overdetermination of the representational content. - Overdetermination: the angle can be changed by appropriate overlapping without changing the picture.
