Newton once observed that one could not win an argument against Einstein.

This was less due to Einstein’s obvious brain power (which interestingly, greatly diminished after his wife passed away 😉 ), and more due to his style of argumentation.

Einstein was knowledgeable on the areas of physics, math and philosophy.

When talking to a philosopher, he staved his arguments with physics.

When arguing with a physicist, he presented his arguments staved with math.

When in discussion with a mathematician, he resorted to philosophy.

One has to hand it to him:  He was a genius!  😉
