Method: a method is a procedure agreed on by participants of a discussion or research project. In the case of violations of a method, the comparability of the results is in particular questioned, since these no longer come from a set with uniformly defined properties of the elements.

Method/Ortega y Gasset: Ortega y Gasset's phenomenological descriptions and analyses are often vague. Some of them prove to be general comments on certain macro themes of world history, to which there are alternative divergent interpretations that are as plausible as those that Ortega favors. Therefore, the reader is not always able to decide which view is the appropriate one. Ortega himself admits that the phenomena of interest to him are characterized by an ambivalence that cannot be eliminated. On page 56 it is clearly stated: "I care a lot about the statement that the situation [...] in whose analysis we are here is ambiguous in nature. […] And this ambiguity clings not to our judgment, but to reality itself." (1)
((s)VsOrtega: "..to reality itself": confusion of word and object, confusion of mention/use).
