Thanks Tiina - very observant!
Sorry to Matt and any others who followed my typo blind alley. In case you hadnt found it and by way of a peace offering I found the entire text of Roy Bhaskar's book A Realist Theory of Science (1978) at http://www.raggedclaws.com/bhaskar/docs/rts/index.html (retails for 15 - 30 if you can get it).
