For and against method including Lakatos's lectures on scientific method and the Lakatos-Feyerabend correspondence by Imre Lakatos ( )
15 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and held by 1,206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The work that helped to determine Paul Feyerabend's fame and notoriety, Against Method, stemmed from Imre Lakatos's challenge: "In 1970 Imre cornered me at a party. 'Paul, ' he said, 'you have such strange ideas. Why don't you write them down? I shall write a reply, we publish the whole thing and I promise you--we shall have a lot of fun.' " Although Lakatos died before he could write his reply, For and Against Method reconstructs his original counter-arguments from lectures and correspondence previously unpublished in English, allowing us to enjoy the "fun" two of this centu
Against method by Paul Feyerabend ( Book )
45 editions published between 1988 and 2010 in English and held by 1,125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Contemporary philosophy of science has paid close attention to the understanding of scientific practice, in contrast to the previous focus on scientific method. Paul Feyerabend's acclaimed work, which sparked controversy and continues to fuel fierce debate, shows the deficiencies of many widespread ideas about the nature of knowledge. He argues that the only feasible explanation of any scientific success is a historical account, and that anarchism must now replace rationalism in the theory of knowledge. This updated edition of this classic text contains a new foreword by Ian Hacking, a leading contemporary philosopher of science, who reflects on Feyerabend's life and personality as well as the continuing relevance of his work. --from publisher description

This stimulating collection is devoted to the life and work of the most flamboyant of twentieth-century philosophers, Paul Feyerabend.

Conquest of abundance : a tale of abstraction versus the richness of being by Paul Feyerabend ( Book )
12 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 630 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"From Homeric gods to galaxies, from love affairs to perspective in painting, Paul Feyerabend reveled in the physical and cultural abundance that surrounds us. He found it equally striking that human senses and intelligence are able to take in only a fraction of these riches. From this fraction, scientists, artists, all of us construct the stereotypes and abstractions that shape our sense of reality. This basic human trait is at the heart of Conquest of Abundance, the book on which Feyerabend was at work when he died in 1994. This book, his last, is a testimony to major developments in his thought."--Jacket
