A tangled history
It is noted above that a complete copy of the current article is at Philosophical realism#The Scottish School of Common Sense Realism, and that common sense realism is also a redirect to that article. This is at least partly owing to this undiscussed merge. Following the rejection of the above RM, there's some tidying up to do regarding hatnotes, redirects, content duplication, and perhaps even page histories. Andrewa (talk) 14:14, 4 April 2011 (UTC)
- I support user:rjensen's proposed move, since;
1) The Scottish school is important enough to the question of direct realism that it really has to be included in the page Philosophical realism in something like its present form. 2) It is evidently also felt that the school has an importance to Scottish culture that does not extend to the minutiae of the history of philosophy of mind. 3) Common-sense realism as such is not by any means restricted to the Scottish school. 4) It is important that users are able easily to find info both as regards philosophy and as regards Scottish culture.
- The best means to achieve this would be to make the present page (both with and without caps) a disambiguation and to use the absolutely clear "Scottish School of Common Sense" for Scottish cultural categorisation and "Philosophical realism" in order to present the ideas in their wider context.

Refactored discussion form Scottish School of Common Sense
The common-sense metaphysics link under philosophy currently redirects to "Infant cognitive development," it should actually be redirected to "Scottish School of Common Sense"; the philosophical idea of common sense has nothing to do with infant cognition, it has everything to do with Thomas Reid (and others in that school). —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 00:35, 9 April 2009 (UTC)
