Texts Hacking I 212
Lakatos: you should read all the texts you can get hold of. Hacking and FeyerabendVsLakatos: this is an elitist demand!
HackingVsCoherence theory: you can always fiddle the data situation! One can conclude that something is not an example! This does not mean that you are lying!
But that withdraws the basics from Lakatos's historical analysis!
According to Lakatos, we cannot rely on any other standards than the cognitive history as it is present.
FeyerabendVsLakatos: elitist. Rationality is simply defined by what is approved by a community. (Here, however, only the last 200 years).
