Critical realism is a movement in philosophy and the human sciences most closely associated with the work of Roy Bhaskar. Since the publication of Bhaskars A Realist Theory of Science, critical realism has had a profound influence on a wide range of subjects. This reader makes accessible, in one volume, key readings to stimulate debate about and within critical realism.

It explores the following themes:

* transcendental realist

* the theory of explanatory critique

* dialectics

* Bhaskar's critical naturalist philosophy of science.
