Crispin Wright has used this fact to prove that perceptual indiscriminability is a non‐transitive relation. Delia Graff has recently argued that there is a ‘tension’ between Wright's assumptions. But Graff has misunderstood one of these, that ‘phenomenal continua’ are possible; and the other, that our powers of discrimination are finite, is sound. If the first assumption is properly understood, it is not in tension with but is actually implied by the second, given a plausible physical assumption.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>Perceptual indiscriminability : in defence of Wright’s proof</dcterms:title> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2022-03-22T10:26:24Z</dc:date> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:creator>Horsten, Leon</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>De Clercq, Rafael</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2022-03-22T10:26:24Z</dcterms:available> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
