So, as against a rigid understanding of scientific ‘truth’ I’m putting forward an anarchical Feyerabendian sense of the term (with correlatives of ‘imaginative intellectual play’ and ‘extrapolation’).
Emphasizing the importance of natural variation, Mach had a Feyerabendian tolerance of nonscientific beliefs ” the familiar point being that it is better to tolerate some error than risk losing variation which might yield fruit later.
