An example might be the temporal sequence of days and nights. 20 Reichenbach [1949] tried to avoid this diffICulty by attaching probabilities directly to ordered sets rather than unordered sets, but such a ploy seems desperate.

That is the problem of explaining how it is possible to acquire knowledge of the physical world on the basis of perception. twentieth-century philosophers tried to solve this problem by defining physical object concepts like red in terms of concepts describing our perceptual states (like the concept of looking red).
