Dr Heather Logue (University of Leeds) ľ Why Na´ve Realism?
Much of the discussion of Naive Realism about veridical experience has focused on a consequence of adopting itŚnamely, disjunctivism about perceptual experience. However, the motivations for being a Naive Realist in the first place have received relatively little attention in the literature. In the first part of the paper, I will criticise arguments for Na´ve Realism offered by M.G.F. Martin, John Campbell, and (some exegetes of) John McDowell. In the second part, I will elaborate and defend the claim that Na´ve Realism provides the best account of the phenomenal character of veridical experience.
