Commentary from a pro-reason, pro-egoism, pro-capitalism perspective
posted by Amit Ghate at 5:52 PM
When I was a young postdoc, I found an obvious but important error in a paper by Hal Hatch, a famous plant biochemist who was the co-discoverer of the Hatch and Slack photosynthetic pathway. My supervisor had me labor for nine months to make absolutely certain we had proof before we submitted the rebuttal paper.Much to the surprise of my supervisor (who was nervous about it) that paper got the most stellar review I had ever received. Later we learned that the review had come from Hal Hatch himself. I was lucky my paper was reviewed by the master; not some lesser follower who might not have been so accepting.
