    The article addresses scientific realism from the perspective of Zubiri, for whom reality is the intrinsic way in which contents are actualized “in” apprehension, on the one hand, and truth is that same reality inasmuch as it is “actualized”, on the other. Since reality is already present in apprehension, it is not an achievement of science, while the postulates of scientific theories can only prove to be erroneous in a process of verification. Insofar as error is possible in the search for truth, the failures of science would support realism, rather than provide evidence of antirealism.
