It is Adam’s unicept of his mother that allows him to recognize her by her voice, her face, her gait, and so on, all in imperfect sensory conditions. Unlike having a concept of something, having a unicept of something implies that one has the ability to recognize and reidentify the thing that the unicept is about. Millikan offers a speculative but compelling story about the evolution and development of unicepts for ordinary perceptual properties. We know that in the visual system, there are detectors for various properties: there are edge-detectors, color-detectors, motion-detectors, face-detectors, and so on.

But then, the substantive theory that Millikan believes can do this job employs an assumption about ideas that is incompatible with the assumptions of phenomenology. Roughly, phenomenology assumes that the units of experience can be validated at one time and from one perspective, while Millikan makes the plausible case that “adequate empiricallybased ideas” must be validated over time and across perspectives. ” The upshot of Millikan’s theory is that the phenomenology of experience is explained away.
