Bill Martens's insightful note suggests an experiment different from what Jim Beauchamp originally proposed. Indeed, asking the suvjects to pick out the "real" piano out of a number of candidates would provide more information than chosing which one of two alternatives it was. However, instead of Neil McMillan or Doug Creelman (who don't seem to be actively participating in the List's discussions these days), I would venture pointing out that (as they have shown) identification and discrimination can be regarded as esentially identical processes.
