Methodology

I am not ready for methodological studies. I do not think I get it. It took 5 days and several re-readings to understand the first chapter in Menger's "Investigations into the method of social sciences with special reference to Economics", and it is only 5 pages. What was the learning? Left my brain muddled and uneasy and unclear about even the things I knew for sure about methodology. I am guessing it was easier in the original German version and translation has rendered several sentences cumbersome to read. However, its not just the language, its the content that is too heavy for me at this point. I just do not know enough to internalise these things. Hopefully things will improve soon.
