This is an interesting issue. A central part of Feyerabend's methodology involved a commitment to comparative theory evaluation. He claimed you see aspects of theories that you do not otherwise see (or easily see) when you make a comparative evaluation. This is part of the reason he thought that even outlandish theories are valuable. They can aid in comparative evaluations. I am writing on this now. If you are interested I would gladly share a paper with you.

Many thanks, Brad, that would be very valuable. You can contact me via Academia.edu or drop me an email (just google my name together with IKGA).
