The project is connected to the Critical Realism Seminar at Örebro University. It conducts research that draws on, applies, develops or in other ways relates to the theory of science that is generally referred to as Critical Realism. The term refers to the combination of a realist ontology – the assumption that there is an objective reality which exists beyond our perceptions of it, and which we can know more or less about – and a critical view of knowledge – based on the ideas that our knowledge of reality is fallible, and that our experiences and observations are situated and conditioned.
