International Centre for Critical Realism
The International Centre for Critical Realism is dedicated to teaching, research and consultancy for critical realism. Our vision is to encourage the use of critical realism as an under-labourer for the natural and human sciences, to realise emancipation, well-being, and flourishing in the natural and social worlds.
Critical realism is committed to interdisciplinary research of a complex, differentiated and stratified world. We are committed to both investigation and critique, guided by the norms of truth, compassion and justice.
We are currently working on:
- Accessible introductory materials to critical realism with a key text forthcoming - Critical Realism in a Nutshell: a brief introduction to critical realism
- Analysis and solutions to the current global crises with an international conference to be hosted at the Institute on this theme in 2014 'From the anatomy of the global crisis, to the ontology of human flourishing'.
