My comments to Grand Design by Stephen Hawking and Leonard

“Traditionally these are questions for philosophy, but philosophy

of the torch of discovery in our quest for knowledge.”


I am not so much in favor of "professional philosophers", which does
not mean that some of them do good ... science (like Maudlin, Slezak,
even McGuin: it is real reasoning).

I find philosophy useful as a database of different way of thinking. It helps not to invent a bicycle again.
