In his essay, Feyerabend explains the idea that both the arts as well as the sciences are style-bound. The assertion that „the sciences are arts“ is only brought into play at the end of the text, and creates some tension with the above argumentation. In the essay it acts as a bold claim with provocative effect – which differs to the introduction of his book, in which Feyerabend strives to „give substance to the title’s claim“. However, the arguments brought forward by him do not stand up to critical examination.
