Popper, Lakatos, Kuhn and Feyerabend occupy leading positions in western philosophy of science. To them we owe the prevailing view that scientific knowledge is never true (nor even probable), and never false (nor even improbable). Even the best scientific opinion, at any time, is nothing more than an justified conjecture, a socially imposed dogma, or a fashionable gestalt.

Some consequences of this attitude to scientific truth verge on the lunatic, and David Stove demonstrates how irrationalists turn the trick of concealing absurdity by a variety of logical and linguistic devices.
