In _A Revolutionary Kind of Science_, Adam Kisby considers the paradoxical possibility that the apparent failure of anomalies research to produce entire series of scientific revolutions is due to its adoption of *increasingly* rigorous versions of the scientific method. Kisby demonstrates that principles common to many versions of the scientific method operate as epistemic filters, precluding from scientific consideration whole classes of *bona fide* phenomena. These phenomena potentially include homeopathic cures, reincarnation, unknown hominids, extraterrestrial intelligence, intelligent design, ancient high technology, cold fusion, astrological correspondences, a fifth fundamental force of nature, and psychokinesis. He then proposes modified principles on which to base a new kind of scientific method that properly accommodates anomalous phenomena.
“[An] interesting, worthwhile, much needed discussion.”

“Kisby has done an outstanding job critiquing the commonly used principles in science for separating out and evaluating data."
