Claude Bernard

Observation is a passive science, experimentation an active science.More Claude Bernard quotes [10/14/2011 01:10:58]
First causes are outside the realm of science.More Claude Bernard quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Men who have excessive faith in their theories or ideas are not only ill prepared for making discoveries; they also make very poor observations. Of necessity, they observe with a preconceived idea, and when they devise an experiment, they can see, in its results,only a confirmation of their theory. In this way they distort observation and often neglect very important facts because they do not further their aim.More Claude Bernard quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The first entirely vital action, so termed because it is not effected outside the influence of life, consists in the creation of the glycogenic material in the living hepatic tissue. The second entirely chemical action, which can be effected outside the influence of life, consists in the transformation of the glycogenic material into sugar by means of a ferment.More Claude Bernard quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
But while I accept specialization in the practice, I reject it utterly in the theory of science.More Claude Bernard quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
