Mackie in his book on Locke. 2 There are points of contact as well as of contrast between Ayer's and Mackie's views. A comparison between them will help to bring out the nature of my reservations about both. According to Ayer, the starting point of serious thought on the matter of perception consists in the fact that our normal perceptual judgements always 'go beyond' the sensible experience which gives rise to them; for those judgements carry implications which would not be carried by any 'strict account' of that experience.

In such a world, at least in respect of visual surface qualities, the notion of 'normal conditions' could be employed with full appropriateness; but we have only to compare that world with ours to see how very crude and inadequate a notion it is for characterising our use of observational predicates. In the world imagined, it might be natural for people to adopt, as part of their common-sense view of the world, a thesis like that we have taken to be expressed by the odd phrase 'the colours are in the objects'; but our world is very unlike that one.

What are 'normal conditions' for viewing the Milky Way? Or for viewing the sun, an oxyacetylene torch or a nuclear explosion? Is the 'normal' mode of observing a reflecting surface with the eyes focused on that surface or, behind it, on the image? The only general sense that can be given to 'perceiving the object as it really is' is 'perceiving it under conditions in which one is not liable to make an error of judgement'; and the conditions required will vary according to the particular predicate we are judging to apply or not to apply, and, sometimes, cannot be stated at all, if the judgement is to be based on unaided observation.
