CCU Lecture: Is Color Real? The Physics, Psychology, and Philosophy of Color

Is Color Real?

Edwards Humanities and Fine Arts Building, Room 256

Louis Keiner, Associate Professor of Physics, Megan McIlreavy, Associate Professor of Psychology, Renée Smith, Professor of Philosophy

Most of us live a world animated by color—deep blue skies, dazzling ocean waters and rich red brick buildings. Every day we encounter brilliant pinks, warm yellows and tremendous teals. Most of us could not imagine life without color; at the same time, very few of us stop to think what color and color experience are. Philosophers raise questions about the nature of color and color experience and point out problems with some of our naïve views about color.
