While attempting to avoid closure, it can be argued that two of the analytical techniques employed by Lawson (1997) strongly imply closure. First, while ostensibly directed at liberating analysis from all forms of closure, the demi?reg is shown to effectively rely on implied closure. Second, when the use of control groups is compared to Mäki's method of isolation, it can be shown that Lawson implies substantially similar closure to that which is proposed by Mäki. Such implied forms of closure generally indicate that the complete exclusion of closure remains somewhat problematic. Accordingly, it is suggested that Lawson's effective prohibition on closure might be moderated by adopting the judicious and careful use of closure, within the context of an open system.
