The introduction aims to bring out some interconnections between the chapters in this volume. It addresses three central questions: 1.What does it mean to conceive of the world as objective? 2. What is the status of causal requirements for the perception of mind-independent objects? 3. What role, explanatory and/or justificatory, does perceptual experience play in making objective thought possible?

Keywords: perception; causation; objectivity; Berkeley's puzzle; causal theory of perception; relational view of experience; scepticism; perceptual knowledge; justification; theory of mind
