Western Philosophy

The recognized anarchist epistemologist Paul Feyerabend (Against Method, 1975) said that the different forms of knowledge are "incommensurable". We think nevertheless that confronting one form of knowledge and another is specially revealing. Thus, we find no major differences in the depth and subtlety of the eastern I Ching and the western Tarot of Marseilles. It doesn't happen the same if we compare this Chinese book with western popular proverbs and sayings, still alive in the way of thinking and doing of the mainstream culture.
