It has generated much discussion, with little resolution of the questions raised. I will argue here that this situation has arisen in part because of the confusion brought about by giving two very different concepts the same name, with the expected result that the valid questions related to the two concepts have become entangled. It furthermore has led to a restriction on the… CONTINUE READING
