Paul Feyerabend on Naturalism - Dictionary of Arguments
Naturalism/Feyerabend: naturalism obtains its rules and standards from an analysis of traditions. This leads to the problem of choosing the "right" tradition. For the naturalist, reason is clearly determined by research.
Feyerabend: pro: at any rate, research can change reason! (For the idealist, reason is the leader of research). >Idealism.

There is an interaction. >Progress._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
