Inquiry 28 (1-4):113 – 118 (1985)
|Abstract||Stephen Yates's objections to Feyerabend's political theory (Inquiry 27 , 137?42) are presented in a way that makes them unnecessarily vulnerable to a rhetorical strategy often employed by Feyerabend. Like many other critics, Yates seems to assume that it is the implausibility of Feyerabend's claims that opens them to refutation, whereas it is really this that makes them such slippery targets of criticism. Rather than claim that Feyerabend's ideal would be virtually impossible to realize, I argue that Feyerabend does not demonstrate why ?democratic relativism? is at all desirable|
