This introductory chapter offers an introduction to critical realism to those who are new to the topic. It explains its key concepts in a straightforward manner and details how these concepts differ from those in competing ontological positions. It then details, at a high level, how a critical realist ontology is applied to empirical research and the potential difference that such an application can make.
