If you're interested in hearing about my current research project, I was a guest on the Philosophy Talk radio show with John Perry and Ken Taylor this summer. The recorded episode will air in the San Francisco Bay Area this Sunday at 10 am PDT on KALW 91.7 FM (re-broadcast Tuesday at 12 noon). You can stream it live at www.kalw.org/listen-live. It will also be available to stream on-demand at philosophytalk.org for one week beginning Friday, Oct 26.

I retired in 2003 because I had a project that I wanted to work on and being a teacher at TT was taking too much time. The project is to work out a projectivist account of color. Color projectivism is the view that objects are not colored, although they look colored. Two ideas make me think that projectivism is the right way to go. First: when we see an object as red - the object looks red - we visually attribute to the object as sensuous non-relational property. Call this property s-red. Similarly there is s-green, s-blue, and so forth. Second: if the world we see about us is anything like physics says that it is then the objects we see about us are not s-colored. So I conclude that it must be that our visual system projects s-colors onto objects.
