Cleanup tag[edit]

I added a cleanup tag, because I think some of the quotes of the article are to long, see also here. -- Mdd (talk) 00:22, 20 February 2013 (UTC)


"Language became a colorless and as indistinct as the business suit which is now worm by everyone…"

Is that typo in the original (in which case {sic}) is needed) or is the typo an error added by an editor (in which case it ought to be fixed)?  allixpeeke (talk) 02:01, 16 December 2015 (UTC)


These are outdated quotes, meaning not from the 3rd edition, which was the last edition during Feyerabend's life. Some of the text changed, some quotes are completely absent in the 3rd edition. I think we should expurgate this page from outdated quotes. --ExperiencedArticleFixer (talk) 16:32, 9 March 2017 (UTC)

Hi ExperiencedArticleFixer, here on Wikiquote the latest edition of a work is not considered to be the only right edition. Quotes from previous editions are not automatically outdated, just quotes from earlier editions. It is however important if multiple editions exist, that the right edition is provided. -- Mdd (talk) 02:09, 10 March 2017 (UTC)
Could you be more specific about which quotes, you think, are out of place here? Then this could be reconsidered? -- Mdd (talk) 02:13, 10 March 2017 (UTC)
