Open peer commentary on the article “Phenomenological Properties of Perceptual Presence: A Constructivist Grounded Theory Approach” by Aleš Oblak, Asena Boyadzhieva & Jure Bon. Abstract: I focus on two observations made in the target article, wherein certain aspects of the phenomenology of perceptual presence are contrasted with the phenomenology of mental imagery. I offer additional context in light of the so-called mental imagery debate, provide additional empirical support for the mentioned observations, and identify what might be a blind spot in the research design presented by the target article.
