Direct realism

Direct realism, also known as naïve realism or Common Sense Realism, is a theory of perception that claims that the senses provide us with direct awareness of the external world. In contrast to this direct awareness, indirect realism and representationalism claim that we are directly aware only of internal representations of the external world. And in contrast to realism in general, some forms of idealism assert that no world exists apart from mind-dependent ideas.
