In Russell's Theory of Perception, Sajahan Miah re-examines and evaluates the development of Russell's concept of perception and the relation of perception to our knowledge of the external world. With the introduction of logical construction (in which physical objects are constructed from actual and possible sense-data) Russell's theory of perception seems to become a causal theory with phenomenalist overtones. The book argues that there is a consistency of purpose and direction which motivated Russell to introduce logical construction. The purpose was to strike a compromise between his empiricism and his realism and to establish a bridge between the objects of perception and the objects of physics and common sense.

"a welcome contribution to the specialist literature in the history of analytic philosophy and will hopefully help to convince the non-specialist that Russell's account of perception is more nuanced than it might otherwise appear...Miah's survey of Russell's views on perception and knowledge is an important step forward in our understanding of Russell's philosophy, and is recommended to all those interested in the philosophy of perception and its history." Christopher Pincock, Purdue University--Sanford Lakoff "Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews "
