Abstract There is a traditional conception of sensory experience according to which the experiences implicated in perceptions of our surroundings are consitutively independent of the objects perceived. This conception is opposed by those, such as Paul Snowdon and John McDowell, who hold, or are sympathetic to, disjunctive conceptions of experience. In this article it is argued that the opponents of the traditional conception misunderstand it.
