The Epistemological Problem Exists

Aurino,

The epistemological problem that Dick wishes to address does exist. I am not discounting the philosophical problem that entails for example:

1. What is an effective explanation?

2. What does it mean for something to cause something else?

3. What is 'true' about a theory of science?

etc...

The problem I'm having aren't the questions it is the presumption by Dick that these problems have been effectively addressed when they haven't. Anti-realism, in whatever form, doesn't solve problems it simply displaces the problems elsewhere.

Warm regards, Harv
