Speaker(s) / Presenter(s): 
David Chalmers (NYU/ANU), "Perception and Illusion in Virtual Reality"
Do virtual reality devices produce the illusion of an external reality?  Or do they produce non-illusory experiences of a virtual reality?  I argue that at least in some cases, these devices produce non-illusory experiences.  I first argue for a realist ontology of virtual objects, and then argue that we can sometimes perceive these objects correctly, in part by analogy with a corresponding question about experiences associated with mirrors.
