Jim the Bart What's so special about F. J. Child? (65* d) RE: BS: What's so special about F. J.Child? 23 Aug 01

People have a tendency to dismiss certain pivotal figures in many fields because they are viewed as having "merely pointed out the obvious". These criticisms always come well after the fact. The question remains as to whether "the obvious" would have been visible at all if it had not been pointed out.

What is achieved by discrediting - or re-valuing (if that's a word) - Child's work?
