Tim Crane "Awareness of Properties"

Some philosophers, notably Mark Johnston, have proposed that we understand the content of hallucinations in terms of the awareness of uninstantiated properties. In this paper I criticise this approach to hallucination and propose an alternative: that hallucination involves the representation of properties. Johnston's view might depend on a mistaken relational conception of awareness; once this conception is abandoned, we can make sense of the idea that we can be aware in hallucination not just of properties, but of objects too.
