Blind to Our Own Nose

Christus resurrexit!

In Wikipedia’s article on Alfred North Whitehead, we find a short but insightful quotation from one of Whitehead’s lectures:

Every scientific man in order to preserve his reputation has to say he dislikes metaphysics. What he means is he dislikes having his metaphysics criticized.

Superb!

The same can be said for most substantive topics that irritate irritable intellectuals.
