    Dominance and the Disunity of Method: Solving the Problems of Innovation and Consensus.Rachel Laudan & Larry Laudan - 1989 - Philosophy of Science 56 (2):221-237.
    It is widely supposed that the scientists in any field use identical standards for evaluating theories. Without such unity of standards, consensus about scientific theories is supposedly unintelligible. However, the hypothesis of uniform standards can explain neither scientific disagreement nor scientific innovation. This paper seeks to show how the presumption of divergent standards (when linked to a hypothesis of dominance) can explain agreement, disagreement and innovation. By way of illustrating how a rational community with divergent standards can encourage innovation and (...)

    The 'New' History of Science: Implications for Philosophy of Science.Rachel Laudan - 1992 - PSA: Proceedings of the Biennial Meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association 1992:476 - 481.
    This paper surveys recent trends in the history of science, using quotations from works published in the last decade. It suggests that philosophers of science have not yet come to terms with those changes, indicates which might or might not lead to productive interchange, and concludes that history and philosophy of science are now further apart than at any time since the early 1960's.
