The epistemological significance of the general theory of systems clearly emerges not only from a synchronical look at the structure of knowledge, but also from the attention to the diachronic aspects of the cognitive process, in other words to what we can call ‘systemic crisis’ and ‘systemic reconstructions’. The paper tries to show the plausibility of this thesis by examining, on the one hand, the theory/experience relationship in the controversy between Poincaré and Duhem, and, on the other hand, Einstein’s heuristic strategy to reach towards the theory of relativity. Precisely in the light of Einstein’s strategy the problem of realism is introduced and discussed in a wider philosophical perspective centred on the two correlated themes of the epistemological subject/object dualism and the sceptical instance. In the conclusion, a model of empirical realism is proposed in opposition to metaphysical realism.
