science

Advertising: the science of arresting the human intelligence long enough to get money from it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
New discoveries in science will continue to create a thousand new frontiers for those who still would adventure.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Fashion is the science of appearance, and it inspires one with the desire to seem rather than to be.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If we take science as our sole guide, if we accept and hold fast that alone which is verifiable, the old theology must go.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is change, continuing change, inevitable change, that is the dominant factor in society today. No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world as it will be. This, in turn, means that our statesmen, our businessmen, our every man must take on a science fictional way of thinking.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today -- but the core of science fiction, its essence has become crucial to our salvation if we are to be saved at all.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
For twenty-five centuries, Western knowledge has tried to look upon the world. It has failed to understand that the world is not for the beholding. It is for hearing. It is not legible, but audible. Our science has always desired to monitor, measure, abstract, and castrate meaning, forgetting that life is full of noise and that death alone is silent: work noise, noise of man, and noise of beast. Noise bought, sold, or prohibited. Nothing essential happens in the absence of noise.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When science discovers the center of the universe a lot of people will be disappointed to find they are not it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Chastity is the cement of civilization and progress. Without it there is no stability in society, and without it one cannot attain the Science of Life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The marriage of reason and nightmare which has dominated the 20th century has given birth to an ever more ambiguous world. Across the communications landscape move the specters of sinister technologies and the dreams that money can buy. Thermonuclear weapons systems and soft drink commercials coexist in an overlit realm ruled by advertising and pseudo-events, science and pornography. Over our lives preside the great twin leitmotifs of the 20th century -- sex and paranoia.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Everything is becoming science fiction. From the margins of an almost invisible literature has sprung the intact reality of the 20th century.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Pornography is the quadraphonics of sex. It adds a third and fourth track to the sexual act. It is the hallucination of detail that rules. Science has already habituated us to this microscopics, this excess of the real in its microscopic detail, this voyeurism of exactitude.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Theology is a science of mind applied to God.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In science as in love, too much concentration on technique can often lead to impotence.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The art and science of asking questions is the source of all knowledge.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
For eighteen hundred years, though perchance I have no right to say it, the New Testament has been written; yet where is the legislator who has wisdom and practical talent enough to avail himself of the light which it sheds on the science of legislation?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
He who would do good to another must do it in Minute Particulars: general Good is the plea of the scoundrel, hypocrite, and flatterer, for Art and Science cannot exist but in minutely organized Particulars.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The most important thing in science is not so much to obtain new facts as to discover new ways of thinking about them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Man masters nature not by force but by understanding. This is why science has succeeded where magic failed: because it has looked for no spell to cast over nature.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
No science is immune to the infection of politics and the corruption of power.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Science has nothing to be ashamed of even in the ruins of Nagasaki. The shame is theirs who appeal to other values than the human imaginative values which science has evolved.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There are two kinds of truth; the truth that lights the way and the truth that warms the heart. The first of these is science, and the second is art. Without art science would be as useless as a pair of high forceps in the hands of a plumber. Without science art would become a crude mess of folklore and emotional quackery.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The true science and study of man, is man himself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The latest refinements of science are linked with the cruelties of the Stone Age.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Art is science made clear.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Researchers, with science as their authority, will be able to cut [Animals] up, alive, into small pieces, drop them from a great height to see if they are shattered by the fall, or deprive them of sleep for sixteen days and nights continuously for the purposes of an iniquitous monograph... Animal trust, undeserved faith, when at last will you turn away from us? Shall we never tire of deceiving, betraying, tormenting animals before they cease to trust us?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A man ceases to be a beginner in any given science and becomes a master in that science when he has learned that he is going to be a beginner all his life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Today the function of the artist is to bring imagination to science and science to imagination, where they meet, in the myth.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
At the rate science proceeds, rockets and missiles will one day seem like buffalo -- slow, endangered grazers in the black pasture of outer space.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The conscience of the world is so guilty that it always assumes that people who investigate heresies must be heretics; just as if a doctor who studies leprosy must be a leper. Indeed, it is only recently that science has been allowed to study anything without reproach.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The true knowledge or science which exists nowhere but in the mind itself, has no other entity at all besides intelligibility; and therefore whatsoever is clearly intelligible, is absolutely true.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Art has a double face, of expression and illusion, just like science has a double face: the reality of error and the phantom of truth.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Thus will the fondest dream of Phallic science be realized: a pristine new planet populated entirely by little boy clones of great scientific entrepreneurs free to smash atoms, accelerate particles, or, if they are so moved, build pyramids -- without any social relevance or human responsibility at all.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Most of the fundamental ideas of science are essentially simple, and may, as a rule, be expressed in a language comprehensible to everyone.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The grand aim of all science is to cover the greatest number of empirical facts by logical deduction from the smallest number of hypotheses or axioms.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The whole of science is nothing more than a refinement of everyday thinking.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The religion that is afraid of science dishonors God and commits suicide.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Sexual love is undoubtedly one of the chief things in life, and the union of mental and bodily satisfaction in the enjoyment of love is one of its culminating peaks. Apart from a few queer fanatics, all the world knows this and conducts its life accordingly; science alone is too delicate to admit it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The suburban housewife -- she was the dream image of the young American women and the envy, it was said, of women all over the world. The American housewife -- freed by science and labor-saving appliances from the drudgery, the dangers of childbirth, and the illnesses of her grandmother had found true feminine fulfillment.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The pace of science forces the pace of technique. Theoretical physics forces atomic energy on us; the successful production of the fission bomb forces upon us the manufacture of the hydrogen bomb. We do not choose our problems, we do not choose our products; we are pushed, we are forced -- by what? By a system which has no purpose and goal transcending it, and which makes man its appendix.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The real accomplishment of modern science and technology consists in taking ordinary men, informing them narrowly and deeply and then, through appropriate organization, arranging to have their knowledge combined with that of other specialized but equally ordinary men. This dispenses with the need for genius. The resulting performance, though less inspiring, is far more predictable.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The credit of advancing science has always been due to individuals and never to the age.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Until politics are a branch of science we shall do well to regard political and social reforms as experiments rather than short-cuts to the millennium.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
By the definition accepted in the United States, any person with even a small amount of Negro Blood... is a Negro. Logically, it would be exactly as justifiable to say that any person with even a small amount of white blood is white. Why do they say one rather than the other? Because the former classification suits the convenience of those making the classification. Society, in short, regards as true those systems that produce the desired results. Science seeks only the most generally useful systems of classification; these it regards for the time being, until more useful classifications are invented, as true.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
This is an age of intellectual sauces, of essence, of distillation. We have conclusions without deductions, abridgments of history and abridgments of science without leading facts. We have animals for literature, Cabinet Encyclopaedias, Family Libraries, Diffusion Societies, and heaven knows what else! What is all this for? Not to add knowledge to the learned, but to tell points to the ignorant, without giving them the trouble to acquire the links. Oh! it is sad work. And the result will be injurious to all classes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To overturn orthodoxy is no easier in science than in philosophy, religion, economics, or any of the other disciplines through which we try to comprehend the world and the society in which we live.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The mythology of science asserts that with many different scientists all asking their own questions and evaluating the answers independently, whatever personal bias creeps into their individual answers is cancelled out when the large picture is put together. This might conceivably be so if scientists were women and men from all sorts of different cultural and social backgrounds who came to science with very different ideologies and interests. But since, in fact, they have been predominantly university-trained white males from privileged social backgrounds, the bias has been narrow and the product often reveals more about the investigator than about the subject being researched.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We are living now, not in the delicious intoxication induced by the early successes of science, but in a rather grisly morning-after, when it has become apparent that what triumphant science has done hitherto is to improve the means for achieving unimproved or actually deteriorated ends.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
No delusion is greater than the notion that method and industry can make up for lack of mother-wit, either in science or in practical life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I know of no department of natural science more likely to reward a man who goes into it thoroughly than anthropology. There is an immense deal to be done in the science pure and simple, and it is one of those branches of inquiry which brings one into contact with the great problems of humanity in every direction.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The great tragedy of science is the slaying of a beautiful hypothesis by an ugly fact.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Strategy is a style of thinking, a conscious and deliberate process, an intensive implementation system, the science of insuring future success.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
All science is either physics or stamp collecting.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We have genuflected before the god of science only to find that it has given us the atomic bomb, producing fears and anxieties that science can never mitigate.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The worst state of affairs is when science begins to concern itself with art.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We have to ask ourselves whether medicine is to remain a humanitarian and respected profession or a new but depersonalized science in the service of prolonging life rather than diminishing human suffering.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We have lost the art of living; and in the most important science of all, the science of daily life, the science of behavior, we are complete ignoramuses. We have psychology instead.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Advertising may be described as the science of arresting the human intelligence long enough to get money from it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Space or science fiction has become a dialect for our time.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When we say science we can either mean any manipulation of the inventive and organizing power of the human intellect: or we can mean such an extremely different thing as the religion of science, the vulgarized derivative from this pure activity manipulated by a sort of priestcraft into a great religious and political weapon.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
