    Abstract:
    This book proposes a way to view the results that are obtained in academic disciplines. It is to see them as disclosing not how the world is, but what may and what must be said about the world. The aim is to avoid the question of realism, while keeping the evident epistemic value of disciplines explicable. The approach is intended to apply across a full range of disciplines, from physics to history, even though the question of realism has traditionally been thought of as one kind of problem in the philosophy of the natural sciences and a different kind in the philosophy of the social sciences and the humanities.
