Now, Sellars understands the analogical relation in a strong way. The sensing of the pink cube is the sensing of a cube that is homogeneously pink; it is pink through and through. 16 However, no state of the central nervous system, a system built out of discreet atomistic constituents, can have properties with the requisite homogeneity. Thus, no state of this system could be a sensing. 17 One other feature of sensings is of vital importance. Sensings, as Sellars conceives them, are epistemically inert.

29 These latter philosophers hold that non-conceptual direct apprehension extends to ordinary objects such as tables and chairs. Sellars rejects all theories that subscribe to givenness. He argues that the notion of non-conceptual direct apprehension is incoherent. Any apprehension, direct or indirect, must be an apprehension of something as being somehow. Hence, Sellars thinks, it must involve classification and thus concepts. A central plank in Sellars’s own account of experience and perceptual judgment is that the non-conceptual component of experience (the sensing) is epistemically inert, that it makes no rational contribution to the reasonableness of a perceptual judgment.
