Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Recognition, philosophy: the ability of a conscious subject to identify a pattern that has already been received by this subject. This ability is no knowledge-how and no quale, since there is no particular way of experience that all the cases of recognition have in common. However, the ability to recognize certain features can be learned, but this is actually an identification and no recognition. See also memory, qualia, knowledge-how, knowledge, computation, identification, individuation, similarity, equality.

Thesis: there must be at least two systems that can recognize a face.

E.g. A dog sees Odysseus sober on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and drunk on the other days.
It can draw several conclusions: 1) That there are drunken and sober people
2) That a man can be drunk on one day, and sober on the other,
3) that Odysseus is such a person .
The conclusions 2 and 3 are not possible to learn logically from the course of events alone. In addition, it needs a (error-prone , but -perceived by him as reliable) source of identification ( Millikan).
Accordingly, a mirror cannot tell me what I look like, as long as I don t have another method to identify the face to be seen there as my own.
