    Cogent and philosophically erudite account of the difficulties with naturalism as an epistemological doctrine For Olafson it is important that naturalism be seen in historical terms as a reaction to naive realism and dualism Despite its efforts naturalism fails to separate itself from these forerunners and contains assumptions based on their tenets Olafson proposes an alternative understanding of our human situation based on Heidegger He substitutes 'world' for 'nature' on the basis that nature exists 'for us' and establishes 'presence' as a foundation for perception Naturalism attempts to ground perception in biological or physical terms and thereby loses its essential meaning
