Imre Lakatos on Texts - Dictionary of Arguments
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!
>Coherence theory, >Coherence.
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).
Lakatos/Hacking: Lakatos has attempted to characterize certain objective values of science without reference to copy theories of truth. (Increase in knowledge).
>Science/Lakatos, >Progress, >Objectivity/Lakatos._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
