Krauss claims that the laws of quantum mechanics can provide an answer to the old philosophical question of why there is something rather than nothing...
Is this a spat about real world physics transgressing onto philosophy's lawn? Is physics unable, or necessarily excluded from, addressing this question? is the answer not to be found in physics, nor can/will it ever be?
