    Robert E. Butts (1966). Feyerabend and the Pragmatic Theory of Observation. Philosophy of Science 33 (4):383-394.
    Central to Paul K. Feyerabend's philosophy of science are two theses: (1) there is no standard observation language available to science; instead, observability is to be viewed as a pragmatic matter; and (2) when considering questions of empirical significance and experimental test, the methodological unit of science is a set of inconsistent theories. I argue that the pragmatic theory of observation by itself decides neither for nor against any particular specification of meaning for an observation language; and that Feyerabend's position (...)

    Robert E. Butts (1984). Kant's Philosophy of Science: The Transition From Metaphysics to Science. PSA: Proceedings of the Biennial Meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association 1984:685 - 705.
    The principles of Kant's pure physics (conservation of quantity of matter, inertia, equality of action and reaction) are a priori in the same sense as are the principles of the understanding. We account for the empirical content of physics by showing that the pure principles operate as rules for generating wellformed empirical descriptions, and as rules for analysis of motion. The relationship between the metaphysics of matter and empirical descriptions is neither deductive, nor as loose as Buchdahl alleges. Belief that (...)
