Paul Feyerabend’s essay “Against method” (1975) is rarely mentioned when scientists try to contextualise and justify their research projects. Or at least I have never come across this piece as a positive reference in a proposal submitted to me for review nor have I ever heard it referred to positively in a talk. Well, except if the writer or speaker is intent on making a difference, polemically of course. Along lines such as these: No! Of course our outstanding study doesn’t believe that “anything goes”, but adheres instead to correct methodological awareness! Here order prevails, so please just disburse those third-party funds, if you wouldn’t mind!
