… the epistemological anarchist has no compunction to defend the most trite, or the most outrageous statement. … he may use reason, emotion, ridicule, an ‘attitude of serious concern’ and whatever other means have been invented by humans to get the better of their fellow men. His favourite pastime is to confuse rationalists … There is no view, however ‘absurd’ or ‘immoral’, he refuses to consider or to act upon, and no method is regarded as indispensable.
— Paul K. Feyerabend, Against Method
