Open peer commentary on the article “Second-Order Science: Logic, Strategies, Methods” by Stuart A. Umpleby. Upshot: I support Umpleby’s advocacy for second-order science. I argue that the prospects are more optimistic than a superficial reading of Umpleby would suggest. I also argue that Umpleby’s proposals imply that radical constructivism and critical realism will evolve towards consilience.
