|Feyerabend I 265
Theory comparison/methodology/Lakatos/Feyerabend: "the relativity theory from 1919 is superior to the Newtonian celestial mechanics".
For Lakatos, such valuations (which he calls "general scientific wisdom") form a useful basis for methodological discussions because they are recognized by the vast majority of scholars. "Although there are very few consensus on a general criterion for the scientific character of theories, there is widespread agreement on particular and fixable achievements."
