    Nothing better while comparing and contrasting the thinking of Thomas Hobbes with John Locke.
    Perhaps a decent butchers sausage in a multi grain bap is called for in the example you quoted ?

    This is especially true when considering Nietzsche vs Kant, or with a nod to the OP, QM vs Relativity.

    In this case, the trimmings would need to include a decent English mustard, and the bap covered in a decent salted butter.

    “It is the history of the change in the attitudes of what was there to know, and how do you find it out, that seems to me the most interesting … story.”

    I'm beginning to think physicists enjoy controversy.

    Yes it is sorry about that. But some light conversation is nice with a meal.
