The paper is focused on the problem of the reliability of reports on Bonnet's hallucinations. The aim is to identify particular factors that make such reports reliable. The factors identified are as follows: the reporter's sincerity and competence (the latter including his/her expert, language, and memory competences), the external (physiological, expressive, and behavioural) confirmation of the report, and the coherence between the report and evidence as well as between various kinds of evidence collected, and within all the reports given (when there are more than one of them). Additionally, our implicit preunderstanding of hallucination (as being not merely the appearance, but also the hallucinator’s lived experience of it, manifested in his/her facial expression, behaviour etc.) is brought to light.
