As far as the process of coming up with ideas and hypotheses goes, of
course embrace methodological pluralism. Not just dialectical analysis --
if an idea comes to you in a dream, there's no less reason to try it out
once you get it. That's how Kekule solved the structure of benzene.

It's when it comes to justification of ideas that you have to be a little
more rigorous.
