Read The case for background independence by Lee Smolin if you want to  find out who was smarter, Newton or Leibniz, as a relativist. Smolin writes also about relationalism, reductionism, natural selection, and hidden variables.

Now the String 2005 is over. Instead of clear-cut conclusions it has triggered long discussions in the blogs of Peter Woit and Lubos Motl and also in the Cosmic Variance by Sean Carroll.
