Tuukka Kaidesoja on Critical Realist Transcendental Realism
Keywords:critical realism, naturalism, Roy Bhaskar, social ontology
I argue that critical realists think pretty much what Tukka Kaidesoja says that he himself thinks, but also that Kaidesoja’s objections to the views that he attributes to critical realists are not persuasive.
