Abstract
The aim of this paper is to review the controversy concerning the nature of nonconceptual content, and its philosophical implications. I will focus the presentation on three topics: the different motivations behind the postulation of nonconceptual content, the arguments for nonconceptual content, and the different characterizations offered of nonconceptual content. In the last section of the paper I will mention the presuppositions behind this notion and analyze a couple of paradoxical theses that emerged from this discussion.
