Abstract

De acuerdo con Roderick Chisholm, una característica distintiva de los fenómenos mentales consiste en que se relacionan con sus objetos "bajo un aspecto". Lois Lane admira como "Superman", pero no como "Carl Kent", al objeto que es tanto Superman como Carl Kent. En este artículo se argumenta que la atención visual no exhibe tal característica. Esto sugiere que la atención es un fenómeno mental excepcional y que entenderla podría proporcionar ciertas intuiciones sobre las relaciones entre la mente y el cuerpo o entre la mente y el mundo. According to Roderick Chisholm, one distinctive characteristic of mental phenomena is that they relate to their objects "under an aspect'": Lois Lane admires the one object that is both Superman and Clark Kent as "Superman" but not as "Clark Kent". This paper argues that visual attention exhibits no such characteristic. This suggests that attention is an exceptional mental phenomenon, and understanding it may provide insight into mind-body or mind-world relations.
