"The most remarkable discovery made by scientists is science itself.
The discovery must be compared in importance with the invention of
cave-painting and of writing. Like these earlier human creations,
sicnece is an attempt to control our surroundings by entering into them
and understanding them from inside. and like them, science has surely
made a critical step in human development which cannot be reversed. We
cannot conceive a future society without science."|
|Jacob Bronowski, Scientific American (1958)|
