Notes
Follows Kantian philosophy in that we cannot ultimately know the thing-in-itself (Ding an Sich). The development of perception and language, of knowing, implies an increasing distancing from the unknowable reality.

Quotes
p.448   "Perceived solidity is not illusory for its ordinary uses: what it diagnoses is one of the "surfaces" modern physics also describes. But when reified as exclusive, when creating expectations of opaqueness and impermeability to all types of probes, it becomes illusory."   Added by: sirfragalot
Keywords:   Epistemology Evolution Presence Reality/Virtuality/Actuality
p.449   "Biological theories of evolution [...] are profoundly committed to an organism-environment dualism, which when extended into the evolution of sense organ, perceptual and learning functions, becomes a dualism of an organism's knowledge of the environment versus the environment itself."   Added by: sirfragalot
