Reviews

“It explores in detail the Kantian position to test its capacity to respond to a critical realist variety of critique based on transcendental argument. … The Problem of Critical Ontology is also more broadly a contribution to a wider body of work that is expanding the breadth and depth of argumentation within and about critical realism – which is surely a sign of a thriving discourse.” (Jamie Morgan, Journal of Critical Realism, Vol. 15 (1), February, 2016)
