Massimi, M; (2011) From data to phenomena: a Kantian stance. SYNTHESE , 182 (1) 101 - 116. 10.1007/s11229-009-9611-z.

This paper investigates some metaphysical and epistemological assumptions behind Bogen and Woodward's data-to-phenomena inferences. I raise a series of points and suggest an alternative possible Kantian stance about data-to-phenomena inferences. I clarify the nature of the suggested Kantian stance by contrasting it with McAllister's view about phenomena as patterns in data sets.
