But surely in your opening post you showed that Goldstein played the good guy by acknowledging that there are different interpretations of the phrase 'classical mechanics' and defining precisely what definition he was going to employ?

 

I repeat my comment one more time that there are yet more sorts of mechanics than quantum v classical.

 

I even offered the example of a type which is sensitive to scale (colouring of cellular automata) which is neither quantised nor does it follow normal rules.

 

go well

I guess that in my heart I was trying to get an idea of who means what when they use the phrase.

 

I really don't know why I do that. In the past I've always regret getting into debates about definitions.
