The binding problem in cognitive psychology/philosophy of mind is usually described as the problem of the how the brain integrates various information on the shape, colour, texture, motion, etc of a perceived object so that all of these properties of the object can be experienced together as a single “scene” by the mind. In other words, how do individual conscious percepts become unified into single perceptual units? How do we explain the way that information processed by different sensory systems is apparently brought together by the brain to produce a unified perception? How is it that we seem to experience a single, integrated world rather than separate perceptual fields for each sensory modality?
Is this a real problem, or has it already been explained away by the likes of Dennett et al?
If we still think of this as a problem, is this simply because we insist on clinging to the Cartesian Theatre view of the mind, with its resident homunculus?
