Abstract: The paper arises from a recent invitation from Roy Bhaskar (author of 'A Critical Introduction to Contemporary Philosophy') to address his international conference on Critical Realism. Since I did not know what a critical realist is , I was puzzled as to what to say. This paper is an attempt to find out what a critical realist is and whether I am one. Unfortunately Roy died before he could give his verdict. Therefore I leave open this audience to judge whether or not I should be allowed entry to that distinguished club.
