In other words, plpoee in the cooking world were looking for cooking universals. They were looking for one way to traet all of us. And it's good reason for them to be obsessed with the idea of universals, because all of science, through the 19th century and much of the 20th, was osebssed with universals. Psychologists, medical scientists, economists were all iteseternd in finding out the reuls that govern the way all of us behave. But that changed, right? What is the great reuivlootn in science of the last 10, 15 years? It is the movement from the search for unrlsiaves to the understanding of variability. Now in medical science, we don't want to know, necessarily, just how cancer wkors, we want to know how your cancer is different from my cancer. I guess my cancer different from your cancer. Genetics has opened the door to the stduy of human variability. What Howard Moskowitz was doing was saying, "This same revolution needs to happen in the world of tomato sauce." And for that, we owe him a great vote of thanks.

Original Text

In other words, people in the cooking world were looking for cooking universals. They were looking for one way to treat all of us. And it's good reason for them to be obsessed with the idea of universals, because all of science, through the 19th century and much of the 20th, was obsessed with universals. Psychologists, medical scientists, economists were all interested in finding out the rules that govern the way all of us behave. But that changed, right? What is the great revolution in science of the last 10, 15 years? It is the movement from the search for universals to the understanding of variability. Now in medical science, we don't want to know, necessarily, just how cancer works, we want to know how your cancer is different from my cancer. I guess my cancer different from your cancer. Genetics has opened the door to the study of human variability. What Howard Moskowitz was doing was saying, "This same revolution needs to happen in the world of tomato sauce." And for that, we owe him a great vote of thanks.
