These podcasts were recorded at an event in September run by the British Sociological Association’s Realism Study Group. A range of speakers working in the critical realist tradition were asked to address the theme of contemporary issues in realist theory. The intention was to link this tradition of social theory to the pressing issues, theoretical and empirical, which those working within it have addressed.
