Naive Realism vs. the Science of Consciousness
Naive realism is often said to be in tension with the science of consciousness. Adam Pautz has probably done more than anyone to articulate what this supposed tension is, and in a series of papers he present his internaldependence objection to the view. Although Pautz should be applauded for his insightful argument, I think it is ultimately unsuccessful. In this paper, I explain why this is so. Along the way, I offer a broad outlook into the variety of attractions and versions of naive realism.
