Incommensurability: FeyerabendVsCritics: Incommensurability does not apply to all competing theories and it applies to theories only if they are interpreted in a certain way, for example, without reference to an "independent observation language"! This restriction has been overlooked by most critics. I do not claim the incommensurability of all theories!
