C.P. Snow on the Einstein-Bohr Debate

'The arguments on both sides are most beautiful and subtle....No more profound intellectual debate has ever been conducted - and, since they were both men of the loftiest spirit, it was conducted with noble feeling on both sides. If two men are going to disagree, on the subject of most ultimate concern to them both, then that is the way to do it. It is a pity that the debate, because of its nature, can't be common currency.'
C.P. Snow in Variety of Men: Statesmen, scientists, writers
