Among theoretical physicists there is a relatively long tradition of commenting on the historical and philosophical questions of their discipline in the form of books aimed at the wider public. Hawking and Mlodinow 2010 book offers the model-dependent realism as an interpretive framework for contemporary science. The article aims at a critical examination of the main points of this framework and comes to the conclusion that despite their efforts the authors did not free themselves from the traditional dispute between realism and anti-realism in the philosophy of science.
