Abstract

Paul Feyerabend (1924–1994) occupies a distinctive position in the philosophy of science and in the wider politics of science. Building on a series of long essays, his 1975 book Against Method challenged the conventional idea that a universal scientific method was the way scientists did, or should, carry out their work. That book’s subtitle, Outline of an Anarchistic Theory of Knowledge, suggested an epistemology with political implications.
