Do perceptual constancies and phenomenal consciousness help provide an account of how subjects perceive things in the world? In particular, how can they help make sense of the idea that perceptual content is given in the perspective of a subject? In this essay I work towards understanding, in a scientifically grounded way, how perceptual constancies and phenomenal consciousness - jointly - can make sense of this idea in a very precise way.
I discuss Tyler Burge's account of perceptual representational content and try understand, in a scientifically grounded way, how it is given in the perspective of a subject. I end up supplementing Burge's account with Paul Churchland's Map-Indexing Model of Perception and Giulio Tononi's Integrated Information Theory of phenomenal consciousness.
