Apparently it was first said about theories in Psychology, but it applies as well in learning sciences: "Theories are like toothbrushes. Everyone has their own and no one wants to use anyone else's". For a contemporary discussion of this problem, its causes and ramifications see the Presidential Column in the December, 2008 issue of the APS Observer.
