In this article I've adapted the presentation I gave for my Master's proposal. The feedback to my proposal was positive and encouraging. However, coming as no great surprise to anyone to anyone, the consistent theme in the feedback has been that I need to narrow the scope of my thesis even further. It is likely that the final topic of my dissertation will be found somewhere within what I talk about below, but it is unlikely to cover everything I discuss.

McGurk Effect 1, Naive Realism 0

Naive realism means different things to different people. I give a rough definition of how I think about it, write about what I like about it, but also why I inevitably think it in unsupportable. My main example for this is the McGurk Effect, a perceptual illusion that occurs when what you see changes what you hear. I also take the opportunity to drop in some references to David Chalmers and Alfred North White Head.
