Title
Amodal completion and knowledge
Author
Abstract
Amodal completion is the representation of occluded parts of perceived objects. We argue for the following three claims: First, at least some amodal completioninvolved experiences can ground knowledge about the occluded portions of perceived objects. Second, at least some instances of amodal completion-grounded knowledge are not sensitive, i.e., it is not the case that in the nearest worlds in which the relevant claim is false, that claim is not believed true. Third, at least some instances of amodal completion- grounded knowledge are not safe, i.e., it is not the case that in all or nearly all near worlds where the relevant claim is believed true, that claim is in fact true. Thus, certain instances of amodal completion-grounded knowledge refute both the view that knowledge is necessarily sensitive and the view that knowledge is necessarily safe.
