Behold the so-called Scientific Method. Scientific Academia anyways.
As opposed to the idealized anything goes of Paul Feyerabend which merely describes how science should work.
Of course, Against Method also describes how science does work at the margins of academia where all the best work is done. Where the sacred cows are gutted before the shocked eyes of bystanders.
Naturally, Popperism is a ridiculous and unworkable pile of crap not worth the effort of reading about it in an online encyclopedia of philosophy.
