    Abstract

    In the first section five criticisms of methodological work are presented and analyzed. It is argued that, though many of the objections contain elements of truth, the study of methodology is still a worthwhile activity. In the next section three alternative approaches to the practice of methodology are critically evaluated. In the conclusion the author discusses the future direction of his own work.
