Max Planck

An important scientific innovation rarely makes its way by gradually winning over and converting its opponents. What does happen is that its opponents gradually die out, and that the growing generation is familiarized with the ideas from the beginning.More Max Planck [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.More Max Planck [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Anybody who has been seriously engaged in scientific work of any kind realizes that over the entrance to the gates of the temple of science are written the words: 'Ye must have faith.'More Max Planck [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
We have no right to assume that any physical laws exist, or if they have existed up until now, that they will continue to exist in a similar manner in the future.More Max Planck [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
It is not the possession of truth, but the success which attends the seeking after it, that enriches the seeker and brings happiness to him.More Max Planck [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Scientific discovery and scientific knowledge have been achieved only by those who have gone in pursuit of it without any practical purpose whatsoever in view.More Max Planck [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
