If we mix red paint with blue paint we get purple paint. Which we
percieve as having a color very similar to violet. If we look at the
spectrum of purple paint and the sensitivity of the human eye, we see
why it looks like violet. This would be the empiricist point of view,
but what would the subjectivist point of view be about purple?
