Is it possible that I see color differently; for example what I call 'red' is 'blue' in your vision.
As we know the science of color, nothing is colored. Red is not "in" an apple. The surface of the apple is reflecting the wavelengths we see as red and absorbing all the rest.
Science can answer my question (with probably a ‘no’) but was wondering if there is any different answer in Philosophy. I personally do not believe this is an off topic question here but is subjective to the interpretation of the question.
As suggested in an answer below there was some significant work done by C.L. Harding in his book ‘Color for Philosophers: Unweaving the Rainbow’. Dr Harding is Professor Emeritus of Philosophy in Syracuse University. One interesting line from the book:
For years I had thought intermittently about the nature of phenomenal color and found it to be utterly opaque to my intellect. Then one day I read a passing comment in Sydney Shoemaker's " The Inverted Spectrum" concerning Bernard Harrison's claim that there are empirical grounds for supposing a spectral inversion to be impossible. This elicited from me a Hobbesian "By God, this cannot be!" and I hurried off to the library to see what scientists were saying these days about asymmetries in color perception.
There are quite a few things explained in the book but my question still remains. I really wanted to keep it very simple and let the scholars on this site explain. Let me put my question this way:
When I opened the text book about colors for the first time in my life at the age of 2, my parents pointed at a cherry and said its red but what I saw was more like what you call a blueberry. I see sky as your cherry color and you see sky as my blueberry color but we both call it blue sky. Another way of saying the same thing is my favourite color is red and yours is blue but in ‘reality’ we both have same favourite colors.
Is it possible?
