That's what a lot of philosophers have said. I say, "Have at it!" Let me know what you come up with.

In theory one could formulate a rationalist system.... but that would of course be ultimately unsatisfactory...

The theoretical level is just a means to an end and never an end in itself, and if it has no grounding in reality, especially experiential-reality and instantiation, then ultimately it is more or less useless.....

Some theoretical constructs can serve the purpose of pure expediency and lenses through which to interact with the world and interpret it.... some may serve to express or validate certain intuitions and seductive logical possibilities.... others may be mere logical constructs that have -some- substantial or persuasive basis but are ultimately unverifiable or indemonstrable and outside of human experience..... others may serve to make sense of things and resolve certain problems but don't ultimately prove anything......

the only one that could possibly matter in this case would be one that is derived from experience and is intrinsically "realizable" through a certain methodology....
and for that one would need a methodology....

Isn't the scientific method that methodology?
