His notion of nonconceptual content is meant to provide, “…a genuine notion of significant representation” which does not require taking “truth” or “reference” as basic notions. However, talk of embodied experience alone is not sufficient to underpin or explain the directedness of intentionality because it leaves us without a principled account of the norms that govern nonconceptual responses in relation to worldly things and features. It is precisely here that a suitably modest account of biosemantics supplies the requisite kind of normativity for nonconceptual content without relying on notions of truth or reference as given.

Figure 1. A version of the Müller-Lyer illusion. The point is that a judgement with the propositional content “the lines are the same length”, must be characterised in terms of concepts which we possess (or as some would say: it is composed of them). In contrast, the purely perceptual response to the illusion is distinguished by the fact that those same concepts are inappropriate in a principled description of its content. Like the strong representationalists I claim that giving attention to the nonconceptual character of phenomenal experiences promises to unravel several old chestnuts concerning conscious experience.
