I think visual experiences are intentional. And I think that different philosophical views about visual experience may be understood in terms of what they say about the intentionality of visual experience. In this thesis, I evaluate different views of experience and experiential intentionality by examining connections between experiential intentionality and further phenomenological, doxastic, epistemic and content-fixing features present in cases of perception and hallucination. I argue from consideration of such connections that visual experiences are intentionally directed on material objects with sensory qualities in their subject’s environments. And I argue that there are some intentional features which are not constituted by experiential relations between the subject and such material objects with sensory qualities actually present in the subject’s environment. For such features, we should accept a representational view of experiential intentionality.
