Abstract
This paper sets out to show that central aspects of Aristotle’s view of science are of continued contemporary relevance. It argues that a widespread failure to recognise this derives, in part, from a continued commitment to Humean ideas. And it shows how Roy Bhaskar’s realist critique of Humeanism highlights some of the strengths of Aristotelian ontology and methodology.
