 Color (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
Colors are perceiver-dependent but hybrid properties: to have a specific color is to have some intrinsic feature by virtue of which the object has the power to appear in a distinctive way (e.g., as in 4).
Colors are what fill in the outlines of these forms, they are the stuff out of which visual phenomena are built up; our visual world consists solely of differently formed colors; and objects, from the point of view of seeing them, that is, seen objects, are nothing other than colors of different kinds and forms.
Color science is a large field, but it is built around the way that colors appear and to the conditions under which colors can be perceived, and the causes which lead to the perception of colors.

 Color - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Color (or colour, see spelling differences) is the visual perceptual property corresponding in humans to the categories called red, yellow, white, etc. Color derives from the spectrum of light (distribution of light energy versus wavelength) interacting in the eye with the spectral sensitivities of the light receptors.
Since perception of color stems from the varying sensitivity of different types of cone cells in the retina to different parts of the spectrum, colors may be defined and quantified by the degree to which they stimulate these cells.
Note that the colors depicted depend on the color space of the device on which you are viewing the image, and therefore may not be a strictly accurate representation of the color at a particular position, and especially not for monochromatic colors.

The orientations of the opponent axes in color space and the consequent identities of the unique hues are not determined by color mixing and matching, or even by the structure of perceptual similarities among colors.
Even though the model is a model of color perception, it proposes principles of organization that lie rather deep within the physiology of the organism, remote from direct empirical test.

Color vision is the capacity of an organism or machine to distinguish objects based on the wavelengths (or frequencies) of the light they reflect or emit.

 ScienceDaily: Color Perception Is Not In The Eye Of The Beholder: It's In The Brain
Perception Of Color Contrast, Constancy Depends On Neural "Reflexes," Says Vision Theory (November 8, 2000) -- In the latest in a series of papers proposing that visual perception is an intricate collection of reflexes similar to the familiar 'knee jerk' response, Duke University Medical Center...
Visual perception -- Visual perception is one of the senses, consisting of the ability to detect light and interpret (see) it as the perception known as sight or naked eye vision.
Motion perception -- Motion perception is the process of inferring the speed and direction of objects that move in a visual scene given some visual input.

 Color Perception
But, while the best philosophical treatments of color of the 17th and 18th centuries (Locke's, for example) took current empirical science of color very seriously, philosophical work on color in much of the 19th and 20th centuries proceeded largely in ignorance of the vast body of subsequent developments in color science.
Since this time, there has been a flowering of empirically informed philosophical work on color: color has become a prominent topic in the field, is now discussed in articles in the best philosophical journals, conferences, and graduate seminars, and has been the subject of a number of new anthologies and monographs.
Despite the increased interest in topics at the intersection of philosophy and color science, there are a number of empirical phenomena surrounding color perception whose philosophical repercussions have been insufficiently acknowledged.

The subject of color usage on the web comes up once in a while, so I thought it might be useful to pull together some basic issues for people who might be interested in color.
