11 If this thesis were correct then we would be unable to talk sensibly to others about our phenomenal experiences since their nature would be radically inexpressible. For an example of the kind of thinking which this view promotes, consider this passage from Farrell: When, for example, we look at a red patch, we all just know what it is like to have the corresponding experience, and we all just know how it diﬀers from the experience we have when looking at a green patch. We cannot describe this diﬀerence (Farrell: 1950: 32, emphases mine).
But it does not. Davidson’s point concerns the radical interpretation of an alien language of which we can make no sense. In contrast, what we have here is two diﬀerent schema, both of which we can make sense of separately, but which we cannot make intelligible in terms of one another (cf. Hutto 1996: § iii). One further caveat wants making. As should be transparent from the discussion, I am not here concerned with higher-order consciousness or selfconsciousness both of which may well involve conceptualisation and an objectbased schema in various ways (cf.
G. the white object which we see is the son of Diares; here because being the son of Diares is incidental to the white which is perceived, we speak of Diares being incidentally perceived. That is why it in no way aﬀects the senses. (De Anima, Bk II, 418a 7–23). These distinctions can be clearly illustrated if we consider the overly familiar example of a frog that is perceiving a ﬂy. We might say that it sees the ﬂy by means of detecting darkly coloured-objects (colour being the special object of the sense of sight) and by means of detecting size and movement (common sensibles).
