This chapter argues that a theory according to which some of the content of perception is self-locating gives us the resources to cash out the central thought behind projectivism, without having to go in for an error theory about the projected qualities. It first surveys some of the phenomena that might motivate what it takes to be the central projectivist thought, and then looks at some ways of cashing out just what it would amount to for the thought to be correct. It makes some objections to some of the standard sorts of projectivist accounts, and then advocates another way of cashing out the thought that it thinks, at least in certain cases, does a better job of both capturing the phenomena and underwriting the projectivist idea.
