OUP CORRECTED PROOF – FINAL, 27/11/2015, SPi  DISTRIBUTED ATTENTION The general idea is that, to put it simply, aesthetic experiences ‘feel’ different: what it is like to have aesthetic experiences is different from what it is like to have non-aesthetic experiences. The question then is: what is this phenomenal character that is proprietary to aesthetic experiences? Some of the most famous candidates are detachment, disinterestedness, and disengagement (Stolnitz 1960 emphasizes disinterestedness, whereas Bullough 1912 emphasizes emotional detachment)—and these are very much in the spirit of the Proust quote I started out with.

Fry 1927, p. 40) Here is another observation that I take to be an uncontroversial feature of aesthetic experiences and that is also surprisingly missing from the philosophical discussion of aesthetic experience. Aesthetic experiences tend to have a lingering effect. They often do not stop when the contemplation of the object of the aesthetic experience stops. After leaving the concert hall or the cinema, one may still see the world differently. Whether this ‘lingering effect’ is better described as the continuation of our aesthetic experience or as the aesthetic experience coloring and altering the ensuing experience depends on how one individuates experiences in general.

While I described this view as a case where we see both the picture surface and the depicted scene, it may be more appropriate to describe it as a way of combining (i) and (ii). Specifically, the proposal is that our perceptual state oscillates between (i) and (ii). But then this view will inherit at least some of the problems of option (i) and (ii). Finally, the most widely discussed way of thinking about picture perception is (iii (b)): we simultaneously see both the two-dimensional picture surface and the three-dimensional depicted scene.
