Depressive realism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Depressive realism

Depressive realism is the hypothesis developed by Lauren Alloy and Lyn Yvonne Abramson that depressed individuals make more realistic inferences than do non-depressed individuals. Although depressed individuals are thought to have a negative cognitive bias that results in recurrent, negative automatic thoughts, maladaptive behaviors, and dysfunctional world beliefs, depressive realism argues not only that this negativity may reflect a more accurate appraisal of the world but also that non-depressed individuals' appraisals are positively biased.

Wannabe-Erudite's insight:

Note depression among all those anti-realist philosophers. I would suggest extending this theory by making the claim that this effect is magnified in the case of people who don't believe in the possibility of knowing reality. Which brings me to a second point. It's the inability to distort reality to make things better that causes the depression.

 

Put slightly differently; rather than depression and a pessimistic-realistic view of this world both existing in people of a given character, the root cause lies in the the inability to ward of the shittiness of life by distorting.
