Abstract

Any investigation or discussion on Color preliminarily addresses the question of its objective or merely subjective nature. With regard to the first, it is necessary to decide whether color is an irreducible quality in sé or a quality of the objects: with regard to the second (“color is in the eye of the beholder”), it is necessary to clarify the relationship between phenomenology and ontology of color. From the modern age (Galileo Newton, Descartes, Locke) to more recent times, the research on color has constantly moved between these two theoretical positions, which in recent times are respectively advocated by two opposite currents: Realism and Eliminativism (or Fictionalism).
