Philosophy Wire: What do you see? Does it matter?


Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2015-12-27]: It seems that people with autism focus on different parts of a picture than people without that disease. [1] We try to see what others see so that we can understand them. But does it matter? How short-sighted is looking at what they see, as if we are optical devices needing calibration? What we see is a result of what we want to see. What we see is a result of what we already feel. Hug a kid with autism. And you will see clearly what it sees. When hearts touch each other, eyes are redundant. Search for the most important things or moments in your life. And you will “see” that what is important in them cannot be “seen”.
