One of the fascinating things about Black Hole Thermodynamics is how we often approach it in a very classical fashion, yet - if real - it is an intrinsically quantum phenomenon. I'll use the illustration of thermodynamics of an accelerating black hole to highlight some of these issues, and I'd like to raise questions on how we derive the First Law, and how unique this derivation is.
