(p.3) 1 Introduction
The Quest for Reality

Barry Stroud (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Outlines the philosophical quest for reality, and how humans are related to the real world through perceptions, thoughts and beliefs. A discussion of what constitutes a metaphysical question is followed by a brief outline of certain philosophers’ ideas on reality through history, focusing on causality, subjectivity and objectivity, physicalism (or materialism) and giving a critique of correspondence theory. Introduces the subject of whether certain ideas, such as colours and morality, are real both as human perceptions and in a correspondent reality.

Keywords:   Causality, Colours, Correspondence theory, Materialism, Morality, Objectivity, Perception, Physicalism, Reality, Subjectivity
