Critical Realism

Discipline: Philosophy

Name introduced by American philosopher Roy Wood Sellars (1880-1973) in Critical Realism (1916) for his attempt to mediate between direct realism and idealism by saying that the objects of perception are neither objects themselves nor ideas arid so on in the mind but sets of properties of these objects.
