Kann ich rational und ein Außenseiter sein? Außenseitermeinungen in der Wissenschaft

Research output: Contribution to journalResearch articleContributedpeer-review


The present paper addresses the question of whether outsiders in science can be rational. This question is addressed on three levels: the level of beliefs of outsiders, the level of decisions of out-siders, and the level of assertions of outsiders. It is argued that outsiders can indeed be rational but only within tightly constrained limits.
