Del's writing on post-empirical science is descriptive of one current
approach to the investigation of the universe and its residents. It is
not to be taken prescriptively. There are other views he discusses.
Nothing of his that I've read indicates that he buys into that doctrine,
any more than my discussion of Logical Empiricism (which is nonsense)
makes me adopt it.
