In British Society for the Philosophy of Science: Proceedings of London meeting 6-9 Sept, 1996, pp. 345-347. This essay is an attempt at a non-technical account of the interplay of concepts pertaining to the realms of relativity and quanta. An all-out global approach holds promise for a more compatible assessment of the two branches of physics. A re-evaluation of the traditionally central position presently held by the Schroedinger-Dirac process must be regarded as a natural consequence of such a change of strategy.
