He deduces that he will have to disprove his current opinions and then construct a new foundation of knowledge if he wants to establish anything firm and lasting in the sciences that is absolutely true. But rather than disprove each of his opinions in

Throughout this essay I will examine their methodology on social reality, how we can gain knowledge from their ontological position and their theory of knowledge, by focusing on their writings about religion.
