Example text

My own initial reaction to realizing I had hallucinated the tree might be that, hallucination or no, I saw it. But I might as easily slump back in my chair and mumble that I wish I had seen it. We might agree that I saw it (vividly) in my mind's eye. But suppose I did sec it in my mind's eye, and again suppose that the hallucination is intrinsically just like the ordinary seeing. Does it follow that what I directly sec in the hallucination is the same, namely, something in my mind's eye? It does not.

I SOME COMMONSENSE VIEWS OF PERCEPTION One natural thing to say about what it is for me to see the blue spruce is that I simply see it, at least in that I see its facing surface. It is near and squarely before me. I need no light to penetrate a haze or telescope to magnify my view. I simply SOME COMMONSENS&iVIEWS OF PERCEPTION 15 see the tree, and it is as it appears. This sort of view—thought to represent untutored common sense—has been called naive realism.

But suppose I had forgotten the event and thus no longer believed I planted the tree, then later came to believe, solely on the basis of your testimony, that I planted it, There is still a causal chain from my present belief back to the planting; for the planting produced your belief, which in a way produced your testimony, which in turn produced my present belief. But die memorial chain in me was broken by my forgetting.
