New Realism is Dr. Charles current obsession. It was

as a formula for empirical research.
There is a living legacy, however in American
psychology, in Australian philosophy, and several
other unexpected niches. Dr. Charles has published a
handful of articles on the subject and editing a book
that released in the Fall of 2010. More information
will be available soon, but for now, here are a list
