These essays draw on a number of influences with the goal being the development of an explanatory model that applies to the organism, brain, mind, psyche and consciousness. The three major influences for the philosophy of consciousness are Husserl, Polanyi and Lonergan. Husserl lays out the field of cosncisousness and introduces ways to catergorize its elements and to relate them to one another. Though he characterized his work as descriptive, I argure that it really is explanatory. I suspect his descriptive bent is patially a reaction to the "explanatory sciences" of physics and chemistry which the naturalists used as their models for science and tried, as much as they could, to use their methods to understand consciousness, an effort still underway today. Description is taken to relate directly to experience, which, in turn may be taken as being reality.

What is Critical Realism?

In pursuit of the real: postmodernism and critical realism - UCL Discovery

Walker, Moira M. PhD thesis, University of Glasgow. The PhD submission centres primarily on the book Testing the Limits of Foster Care, which reports on a piece of applied social work research, and the paper Critical Times: a critical realist approach to understanding services for looked after children which examines key theoretical issues relevant to the study. In common with Testing the Limits of Foster Care, these seek to understand aspects of child welfare practice in light of wider changes in society and social policy and so are consistent with a critical realist perspective.

critical realism

Critical Realism CR is a branch of philosophy that distinguishes between the 'real' world and the 'observable' world. The 'real' can not be observed and exists independent from human perceptions, theories, and constructions. The world as we know and understand it is constructed from our perspectives and experiences, through what is 'observable'.
Kolovou, Vasiliki A critical realism approach to public health interventions that aim to prevent obesity in selected European countries. PhD thesis, University of Warwick. Request Changes to record. The aim of this thesis is to understand the important components of a set of sustainable interventions to prevent obesity at the community level by using realistic evaluation, which draws on the philosophy of critical realism. Key personnel involved in the organisation of each of the three selected interventions were identified and qualitative research and data analysis was carried out.
