I first ask “what’s their limiting perspective?

My view of good science is that it’s an extension of common sense and can go off track if it tries to be a full replacement for common sense – after all someone trained in physics will naturally see everything from a limited physics viewpoint. Someone who is mathematical will see everything from a mathematical perspective etc. That’s why I take grand everything theories with a big dose of skepticism. I first ask “what’s their limiting perspective?” And it’s helpful. Doesn’t take away from good stuff they have to say but it provides a context from within which to view their work.
