The topic of this seminar is the argument from illusion, direct realism, and the nature of perceptual consciousness. Among the questions we shall ask are: Is perception a mode of direct awareness of a mind-independent reality? What are the objects of perception? What is given to perceptual consciousness? The reading list will comprise recent work by A.D. Smith, John Campbell, Brian O'Shaughnessy, as well as by others, including the instructor.
