  • I. Rising Up From Downunder: Comments on Feyerabend's 'Marxist Fairytales From Australia'.W. Suchting - 1978 - Inquiry: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy 21 (1-4):337 – 347.
    These notes comment on two claims in Paul Feyerabend's reply to a critique of his Against Method published in Inquiry, Vol. 20 (1977), Nos. 2?3. One of these is that this critique did not adequately deal with scepticism. The other is that it contained a radical misunderstanding of his basic argument regarding critical rationalism/ Methodism. Some mainly elucidatory remarks are offered on the first point, and the original position maintained on the second, making use of what Feyerabend says in his (...)

  • Theoretical Philosophy and Philosophy of Science in the Soviet Times: Some Remarks on the Example of Estonia, 1960-1990.Rein Vihalemm - 2015 - Studia Philosophica Estonica 8 (2):195-227.

  • III. Yates on Feyerabend's Democratic Relativism.C. Fred Alford - 1985 - Inquiry: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy 28 (1-4):113 – 118.
    Stephen Yates's objections to Feyerabend's political theory (Inquiry 27 [1984], 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 (...)
