William Molyneux posed the following question: Consider a person who has been born blind and who has learnt to distinguish a globe and a cube by touch. If this person could suddenly see; would they be able to distinguish these objects by sight alone? This seventeenth-century thought experiment; known as ‘Molyneux’s problem’; received attention from some of philosophy’s greatest minds. We discuss how thinkers like Locke and Leibniz; as well as artists with visual impairments; responded to Molyneux’s challenge.
