Term used in epistemology* to define a position distinguished from naive realism.* Critical realists agree that there is a difference bet. an object and the perception of an object. But there is wide disagreement as to the nature of the media, vehicles, or essences that convey knowledge and by means of which, or through which, we perceive and think.
