Abstract

This paper, presented at the 6th International Congress of Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science in Hannover in 1979, argues that the dominant tradition in tracing the history of the philosophy of science has become fixated on one line of development. It puts the case for another major line of development that has been pursued vigorously in some parts of the world while being ignored in other parts.
