Wondering about academic disciplines 

It seems that it is very common in philosophy to respect someone's work but disbelieve everything they say. And think that there are good reasons why none of their arguments work. And think that there are good arguments for a different view. I assume that that couldn't happen in many disciplines.

In Fluid Mechanics it is more like mutual disagreement with schools of throughts. Us vs Them. But there is at least some consensus on most of the graduate level textbook material.
