    Abstract

    An account of reference which treats the role of perceptual demonstratives as fundamental is explored. Campbell’s[1] account of reference and perceptual demonstratives is discussed, but it is argued that his account of perception is unsatisfactory, and an alternative account is proposed. This account is derived, albeit with substantial modifications,
    from Lewis[6] and Chisholm[2].
