Some Philosophy

"Scientific principles and laws do not lie on the surface of nature. They are hidden, and must be wrested from nature by an active and elaborate technique of inquiry. " 
— John Dewey (Reconstruction in Philosophy)

“The world of physics is essentially the real world construed by mathematical abstractions, and the world of sense is the real world construed by the abstractions which the sense-organs immediately furnish. To suppose that the "material mode" is a primitive and groping attempt at physical conception is a fatal error in epistemology.”

“Nothing could be worse than the fear that one had given up too soon, and left one unexpended effort that might have saved the world.” 
― Jane Addams
