A new term has entered into the lexicon of quantum mechanical interpretation: \participatory realism" (a term coined by Chris Fuchs to describe his own QBism, borrowing from John Wheeler's later participatory universe ideas). This paper brie y explores this idea and the extent to which sense can be made of its claims of realism. I find that attempts to render it into a realist stance hark back to Max Born's broadly structuralist idea that there are objective invariants within the apparently ineffable quantum world.
