Colour in a Physical World: A Problem due to Visual Noise

Mind 121 (482):333-373 (2012)
Abstract
I will develop a new problem for almost all realist theories of colour. The problem involves fluctuations in our colour experiences that are due to visual noise rather than changes in the objects we are looking at.
