Abstract

In this article, the second of a series of four articles that engage critically with the arguments of two recent and significant additions to the literature on critical realism (Bhaskar’s Enlightened Common Sense: The Philosophy of Critical Realism and Bhaskar et al.’s Interdisciplinarity and Wellbeing: A Critical Realist General Theory of Interdisciplinarity), I present the results of a critical engagement with other categories of original or basic critical realism. Using the method of immanent critique and focusing mainly, but not exclusively, on the arguments of Enlightened Common Sense, I identify, and propose solutions to, a range of problems pertaining to the concepts of intransitivity, the domains of the real and the subjective, and the domain of the actual. In identifying and resolving these problems, my aim is to clarify and develop the categories of original critical realism and thereby ensure that critical realism as a whole is as effective an underlabourer for science as it can be.
