That which we describe is not reality, therefore. Still, it was only through experimentation that physicists began to unravel the mysteries of the atom. Our knowledge is imperfect, but it still allows us to generate power and blow up people we don’t like. While we can never perfectly describe reality, we can, by careful analysis of the world we (seem to) live in, hope for ever closer approximations in our understanding. In the critical realist tradition, we can only understand reality by identifying structures which are not readily apparent, and arranging these in a hierarchy of importance (Bhaskar 1989, pp.

As we shall see, it is natural for the artist to believe they have achieved true insight. The scientist is always confronted with the incompleteness of their vision.
