Recent Work on Naïve Realism


by James Genone

Abstract

Naïve realism, often overlooked among philosophical theories of perception, has in recent years attracted a surge of interest. In this essay, I distinguish naïve realism from related direct realist theories of perceptual experience, and in particular from representationalist approaches to perception. I then examine the motivations behind the view, and discuss some of the central objections that have been raised against it. I conclude by describing additional challenges that remain as topics for further investigation for defenders of naïve realism.
