Whatever the numbers I'm sure you take my point that the number of
citations has very little to do with the correctness or importance of
an author. Nobody cites Isaac Newton in physics papers anymore.
Run Isaac Newton in the Google Scholar and you will be surprised. For
[BUCH] Newton's Principia: The mathematical principles of natural philosophy
Zitiert durch: 1369
and there are other works, Optics for example is quite close.
As for correctness, I would agree. As for importance not. When the
scientific community cites something, then it is indeed important for
the scientific community.
P.S. I think I have understood where you have seen your numbers. This is
for example for Feyerabend
Ergebnisse 1 - 10 von 34.000
in the right top angle. Well, it would be necessary to exclude people
with the same family, but after some research, I would agree with you.
It seems that in the academic circles represented by Google Scholar
Leviticus is a bit more popular than Feyerabend if we take this count.
Anyway I am eased now - there is no censorship in Germany.
