Abstract

I argue that an older debate in phenomenology concerning Husserl's notion of hyletic data can throw some light on contemporary debates about qualia and phenomenal consciousness. Both debates tend to ignore important considerations about bodily experience and how specific kinds of bodily experience can shape one's consciousness of the world. A revised and fully embodied conception of hyletic experience enriches the concept of enactive perception.
