A Difference of One Iota

If you happen to be a student of internecine dust-ups among Objectivists... I know, unless you're involved it's an arcane topic, with too many banishments to keep track of...

Anyway, there's a new one, described in excruciating detail by Robert Tracinski:
But the most recent Objectivist controversy is too big to ignore, paper over, or address only indirectly. Its implications go too wide and too deep, striking at the very core of the movement's soul.
Q: So, what brought this on?

A: Disagreements about the history of science and the problem of induction

It's stunning how a topic
that seems so microscopic
becomes the breeding ground
for another angry round.
