Mirrors, Illusions and Epistemic Innocence

Abstract : Four major accounts of perception through a mirror are presented: two of them are unifier accounts (the entity one sees in the mirror is the same as the entity that gets reflected), and two are multiplier accounts (the entity seen is distinct from the entity that gets reflects: it is either a reflection, or a replica thereof). Most accounts have unwanted consequences, which manifest themselves by making perception through a mirror illusory one way or another. A unifier account is defended which reconciles metaphysical sobriety with epistemic un-innocence.
