One premise in Cassam s argument for this claim is that, in order for S to conceive of objects as having a shape, being spatially located, and being solid, S s perceptual experience must present such objects to him in just that way (i.e. as shaped, spatially located, and solid). And about the experience of solidity, Cassam adopts the standard view;  solidity is typically felt as an impediment to one s movements (1997: 52).
