Hot off the Press! Interview on Progressive vs Degenerative Research Programmes with Leslie Allan!

Progressive research programs, like daring astronauts, catapult us into the vast unknown, making bold, untested predictions that stretch the fabric of our comprehension. Degenerative programs, in contrast, linger in well-trodden territories, shoring up existing knowledge with complex embellishments rather than breaking new ground.

Leslie Allan is a philosopher & humanist — here are some of his papers:
