Logic I 194
Logic/Theory/Observation/Feyerabend: good ideas can become endangered by bad test procedures. Then a purely logical method, which puts all sentences on the same level, is naïve and hinders progress. Marx saw this clearly.
I 337
Logic/Feyerabend: there is a dogma that all areas, how ever they may be composed, entirely obey the laws of logic.
FeyerabendVs: if this were correct, the anthropological fieldwork would, of course, be superfluous. But it is not clear why the different areas should have a uniform logic. They do not merely provide different interpretations of one and the same set of logical "facts," but different "facts".
In addition, there are statements that obviously contradict logic: E.g. illusions.

I 389
Methodology/Logic/Feyerabend: exclude too much, they are too narrow. In between lies the ever-changing kingdom of human ideas and desires.
