Abstract

Sense Perception and Reality examines the remarkable similarities between philosophical idealism and the Copenhagen Interpretation of quantum physics. The book looks at perceptual relativity including animal senses, neurology and cognitive psychology. It concludes the universe is observer dependent and varies with the sensory apparatus used to observe it. The Copenhagen Interpretation is examined and perceptual relativity would appear to apply in the quantum world. The Copenhagen Interpretation suggests the universe is observer dependent, the same conclusion as is found in philosophical idealism in the macro world. The book concludes by examining the consequences of an observer dependent universe and by showing such a universe is quite consistent with a modern objective science.

Keywords: sense perception, reality, ontology, perceptual relativity, quantum mechanics, quantum theory, observer dependent universe, Niels Bohr, Albert Einstein, Werner Heisenberg, Copenhagen interpretation, metaphysics, George Berkeley
