Feyerabend (Against Method, p. 74) writes of this absolute space as being
defined by the solar system, but this is presumably just a slip. The adjective solar
is inappropriate and inadequate for the non-Copernican view that is being
characterised. " Against Method, p. 75 * Ibid., p. 90, italics in original. " Ibid., p. 79,

AUL FEYERABEND FAMOUSLY wrote in his Against Method that 'anything goes'

show that methodological principle was frequently and historically deviated from,
and that this was the only guarantee of human progress. We find the same notion

own contribution as an independent volume. Although Feyerabend's
animadversions “against method” have often been interpreted as advancing the
normative claim that scientists, in order to ensure the progress of their enterprise,
should adopt ...

based in Berkeley, Cali- fornia, for most of his academic career, but who also

published a book in 1975 with the title Against Method: Outline of an Anarchistic
Theory of Knowledge. In it he challenged all of the attempts to give an account of
scientific method that would serve to capture its special status by arguing that
there is no ...

); and his corresponding deep commitment to fostering the conditions of
maximum scientific creativity even to the point of claiming the creative value of
violence! 'Violence . . . is beneficial for the individual, for it releases one's
energies and makes one realize the powers at one's disposal' (Against Method).
His admonition not to stifle scientists' creativity because of a dominant
methodology is reflected in ...
