A Neo-Copernican Revolution is just another way of saying I will, like Copernicus, who, rather than go with the generally accepted Ptolemaic geocentricism, adopted heliocentricism and changed the way the world views the universe. And like Kant, who rather than join the queue in the debate in favour of either rationalism or empiricism, sought a synthesis and killed the old debate between rationalists and empiricists and gave epistemology a new direction.
I therefore think seriously about any views expressed – even a view that has never been expressed before. I belief that any opinion is as strong as another and hence all should be expressed. Feel free then to make your comments, challenge my views and engage me in debates.”
