In this theoretical paper, the claim is defended that the phenomenology of perceptioncan be integrated into vision science. Varieties of theoretical and experimental phenomenologyare presented to specify a minimal set of commitments. It is claimed that thephenomenological research into perception, be it delivered in the form of conceptualanalysis or of experimental research, satisfies the epistemological and methodologicalsubstantive features of these commitments. A received view in the visual neurosciencesand the objections against its elementarwise and reductionist stance are presented as anempirical case for the contribution that the integration of phenomenology into visionscience could bring about.The relationships among models and mechanisms are discussed. It is argued thatmodels endowed with linking propositions with phenomenological contents can providethe conceptual case for the integration of phenomenology into vision science tobe carried out.
