People think about mirrors in confused and contradictory ways. This gives rise to philosophical puzzles. The following three are the most famous. (A) There’s a puzzle about what we see in a mirror, a puzzle about mirror images. (B) There’s a puzzle about how what we see in a mirror looks, a puzzle about what is distinctive of mirror appearances. (C) There’s a puzzle about where what we see in a mirror appears to be, a puzzle about the perceived location of things we see in mirrors.
