Darwin · Hull

Quote for the Week…

I am reminded of Charles Darwin’s comment about his close friendship with his fellow magistrate and constant dining companion, Brodie Innes, the vicar of Downe. Darwin said that on one memorable occasion they found themselves in agreement and spent the rest of the meal in astonished silence, convinced that the other was very ill!

From Michael Ruse’s poignant tribute to philosopher of science David Hull, who just passed away.
