What a ridiculous thing to say given that the purpose of peer review is to actually expose and eliminate bias


In the more reputable disciplines, however, it is to expose and eliminate mistakes. The day I see a journal entitled, "Progress in Philosophy", that isn't just somebody's opinion about what entails 'progress', I'll swallow my own head.

In case you want to argue 'progress', we could start by recognising some questions that have simply been marked 'answered'. But isn't that the whole ball of wax in a thread like this? Those are some of the questions you know it was worthwhile to have asked.
