Philosophy of Science position. (After sharp criticism of the
critics by Ken Fountain, it was pointed out to Ken that AAUP had
not taken a position on this matter or made a statement. It was
recommend to Ken that he look at the letters of David Robinson
and the History discipline on this matter and voice his position
to these individuals. )
