A Response to the Claim 'There is no Problem for Transcendental Realism Here'
My review of Tony Lawson's book Economics and Reality sought to clarify the nature of transcendental realism (TR) and indicate disagreements with its claims. I thank Jochen Runde for taking the time and trouble to respond to my review. Reading Runde's response made me aware that various points in my initial review were possibly not as clearly formulated as they could have been. I am thankful for the opportunity to remedy this deficiency. I would like this response to be as constructive as possible. To facilitate this, I will formulate a series of questions regarding areas where I still feel clarification of the TR position would be beneficial.
