For some reason I couldn’t add this as a comment to Eric’s blog, but it’s equally appropriate here at the Campvs. It’s a quote about the late Australian philosopher David Stove, by Roger Kimball at the New Criterion:
With a combination of dazzling philosophical acumen and scarifying wit, Stove does for irrationalism in Karl Popper’s philosophy of science (and that of such illustrious heirs as Thomas Kuhn and Paul Feyerabend) what the Romans did for Carthage in the Third Punic War: he assaults and destroys it utterly.
That’ll pique your curiosity.
