M. ) Views into the Chinese Room: New Essays on Searle and Artificial Intelligence. Oxford University Press, Oxford (2002) The Explanatory Status of the Sensorimotor Approach to Phenomenal Consciousness, and Its Appeal to Cognition J. net Abstract. This paper starts by providing a succinct overview of the sensorimotor approach to phenomenal consciousness, describing its two parts: the part that concerns the quality of sensations, and the part that concerns whether or not such qualities are (consciously) experienced.

For instance, there is a “blind spot” where the optic nerve emerges from the eye, taking up the space where photoreceptors (necessary for registering light) would otherwise be. The photoreceptors themselves are distributed unevenly, concentrated toward the centre of the eye, so that what can be seen peripherally is significantly less detailed. This lack of detail also affects the depths of the colours we see. The phenomenon of “cortical magnification”, where the retinal neurons bring together the reflections of light off an object, produces further distortions.

It is part of a web of interactions, in a world that shapes our understanding of its artifacts, its customs, and, in this example, the need and desire for shelter, the “for-whats” that constitute experience. John Haugeland also discusses the centrality to experience of engagements that are the result of past experiences sedimenting into a present understood in terms of possibilities in his Heideggerian insights into the role of culture and practice: Human intelligence is surely manifested in the ability to design and make things—using, as the case may be, boards and nails.
