Tiivistelmä

The details of the process in which the information from the object reaches the perceiver vary according to different theories. However, before the fourteenth century most medieval philosophers accepted, mostly without further ado, the basic realistic assumption that the senses are reliable. The aforementioned transmission errors are based on the realist principle that unless there is something wrong in the medium or in the senses themselves, external things are perceived as they really are and believed to be so. When all of the preconditions have been fulfilled, they then constitute the ideal conditions for visual perception, but they must be understood in relation to real things in the world, as optimal conditions for perceiving the object by the perceiver in these circumstances. Peter Auriol argues explicitly that the circle that appears in the air does not have a real being in the stick, as that would mean that the stick is circular.
