Annalisa Coliva and Paolo Leonardi discuss Tyler Burge's monumental Origins of Objectivity. After presenting its main theses, they critically examine Burge's notions of representation, a priori norms, and thought. Finally, they explore their bearing on various cognitive and epistemological issues, such as the nature of perceptual content, the function of memory and attention in perception, the difference between non propositional and propositional thought and the role of perceptions in justifying our beliefs.
