About Book:

In a major contribution to the theory of perception, A.D.Smith presents a truly original defence of direct realism the view that in perception we are directly aware of things in a physical world. It

offers two arguments against direct realism-one concerning illusion, and one concerning hallucination that up to now no theory of perception could adequately rebut. At the heart of Smiths theory is a new way of drawing the distinction between perception and sensation alone with an unusual treatment of the nature of the object of hallucination.
