By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

@Lynne, can I leave it like this:

On the other, it illustrates what a minefield to navigate the dialectical facet of probability is for historians of science.

    On the other what?

    We normally say, "On the other hand,..."

    I would write, "On the other hand, it illustrates what a minefield it can be, for historians of science, to navigate the dialectical facet of probability."

    I would say, "can be" or "may be" because some historians of science may not find it problematic.

    Of course, on the other hand.

    Yes, it may be unproblematic. :) Thank you very much. :)

    Or perhaps it would be simpler:

    "On the other hand, it illustrates what a minefield the dialectical facet of probability can be for historians of science."
