H.O.T. Theory, Concepts, and Synesthesia: A Reply to Adams and Shreve (pages 443-448)

Rocco J. Gennaro

ABSTRACT: In response to Fred Adams and Charlotte Shreve’s (2016) paper entitled “What Can Synesthesia Teach Us about Higher Order Theories of Consciousness?”, previously published in Symposion, I argue that H.O.T. theory does have the resources to account for synesthesia and the specific worries that they advance in their paper, such as the relationship between concepts and experience and the ability to handle instances of ‘pop-out’ experiences.
