I appreciate our discussion yesterday because I now have a more complete picture of the now classic battle between philosophers of science.
there’s a few things about Lakatos that i learned would make me not back him fully today
in 1972, he very boldly declared why Darwin remains in the pseudoscience category : (Lakatos was much stricter than Popper).
nobody was able to meet his challenge until the early 1990s.
I don’t remember exactly what it was but apparently it was a difficult hurdle
