Norbert Wiener

American mathematician
The advantage is that mathematics is a field in which one's blunders tend to show very clearly and can be corrected or erased with a stroke of the pencil.More Norbert Wiener quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In a very real sense, we are shipwrecked passengers on a doomed planet. Yet, even in a shipwreck, human decencies and human values do not necessarily vanish, and we must make the most of them. We shall go down, but let it be in a manner to which we may look forward as worthy of our dignity.More Norbert Wiener quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To live effectively is to live with adequate information.More Norbert Wiener quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The mechanical brain does not secrete thought "as the liver does bile," as the earlier materialists claimed, nor does it put it out in the form of energy, as the muscle puts out its activity. Information is information, not matter or energy. No materialism which does not admit this can survive at the present day.More Norbert Wiener quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The most fruitful areas for the growth of the sciences were those which had been neglected as a no-man's land between the various established fields.More Norbert Wiener quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
