Abstract

Discussion with Professor Alex Byrne on philosophy of colors and the contemporary debate on the problem of color inverted spectrum, in view of the fact that such controversy is partially generated by some reflections of Wittgenstein presented in "Notes for Lectures on 'Private Experience' and 'Sense Data'". I am doing, at the moment, a translation into Portuguese and a commentary on this text. My objective with this visit to MIT is to give an updated and relevant information to the commentary in regard to the contemporary debate on color inverted spectrum. (AU)
