This chapter shows how different views respond to external-internal puzzle. Basic naive realism and response-independent representationalism are different. Basic naive realism provides an “act-object” explanation of the character of experience, while response-independent representationalism provides a representational explanation. The internal physical state holds that experiences just are internal physical states, for instance neural states. Differences in experiences just are differences in these neural states. The problem with this view is the opposite of the problem with basic naïve realism and response-independent representationalism. While it accommodates a strong form of internal dependence in a simple and unmysterious way, the price is that it is apparently at odds with essential external directedness. The puzzle of perception – the puzzle of “appearance vs reality” – has been a focal point of philosophy from the start.
