"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

@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."
