Bhaskar’s approach in developing his philosophy is two pronged. ” The function of the transcendental argument in this case is to state in positive terms the conditions necessary for the social activity of science. Second, he offers an immanent critique of the current competing philosophies of science, negatively exposing their weaknesses and inconsistencies. While these two approaches may seem to be at odds with one another, Bhaskar observes that on reflection these two apparently opposed procedures must amount to fundamentally the same thing.

They are like the thing-in-itself: unknowable. Imaginative model-building of possible mechanisms producing the stimuli in the first place is only a helpful fiction to aid the understanding. The world of phenomena for the transcendental idealist thus presupposes the constant conjunction of events as a sine qua non for natural necessity. Thus, the classic cause/effect model employed in the empirical realist ontology is also at work in the transcendental idealist’s phenomenal world. The difference is that knowledge of cause and effect for the transcendental idealist is a structure of the understanding; whereas for the classical empiricist, knowledge is vested in an actual sequence of atomistic events.

Hence, empirical realists are caught in a bind: they must either claim the world is a closed system, such that the constant conjunction of events (Humean laws) identified through scientific experiments work with the same constancy in the world outside the laboratory, or they must acknowledge that science so far has not been able to give us any scientific laws. As Bhaskar shows, the former is not empirically demonstrable, while the latter ends in the absurdity of denying the well-established efficacy of scientific knowledge.
