Stephen Hawking

Stephen Hawking

is an English theoretical physicist and cosmologist, whose scientific books and public appearances have made him an academic celebrity.
Maybe I'm being a bit harsh on philosophers, but they have not been very kind to me... I have been variously called nominalist, an instrumentalist, a positivist, a realist, and several other ists. The technique seems refutation by denigration: If you can attach a label to my approach, you don't have to say what is wrong with it... I am sure that Einstein, Heisenberg and Dirac didn't worry about whether they were realists or instrumentalists.More Stephen Hawking quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
