Thanks for the citation on perception.

There are other citations that one might reference.

I should note that whenever I taught a course I would use a ploy
something like this -- "We won't start with a definition of COGNITION.
Whatever you take out of studying the material we will study in this course
will be YOUR definition of COGNITION."

If I were teaching a course on PERCEPTION, I would be most pleased
if all of the students would end the course assiduously avoiding the use of
the term REALITY.

By the way -- THE NEW YORK TIMES, this morning, announced the death
of Thomas Kuhn.
