What Is Naive Realism?


Abstract
Naive realism is the subject of criticisms and attacks from more sophisticated philosophical positions. Many philosophers admit that naive realism is kind of common sense knowledge. In this paper the author suggests that this approach is incorrect one. In first part of article he gives an account of a typical view of naive realism; in second part, he attempts to answer the question as to why naive realism is naive; in third part he demonstrates that there is no equivalence between naive realism and the common sense knowledge; in the fourth part he analyses some examples of the philosophical argumentation which focuses on the concept of naive realism. Key words REALISM, COMMON SENSE
