Today in Science History - Quickie Quiz. Unless we solve that problem it will avail us little to solve all others. Decus et pretium recte petit experiens vir. The man who makes the attempt justly aims at honour and reward. Epistles bk. In Satires, Epistles and Ars Poetieatrans. Rushton Bird Flight - Paul Harmann - Survival - The Natural World As quoted by F.
A good title Bird Flight - Paul Harmann - Survival - The Natural World aim at making what follows as far as possible superfluous to those who know anything of the subject.
Samuel Butler, Henry Festing Jones ed. A modern branch of mathematics, having achieved the art of dealing with the infinitely small, can now yield solutions in other more complex problems of motion, which used to appear insoluble. This modern branch of mathematics, unknown to the ancients, when dealing with problems of motion, admits the conception of the infinitely small, and so conforms to the chief condition of motion absolute continuity and thereby corrects the inevitable error which the human mind cannot avoid when dealing with separate elements of motion instead of examining continuous motion.
In seeking the laws of historical movement just the same thing happens. The movement of humanity, arising as Cant We Just Sit Down And Talk It Over - David Soul - Moods does from innumerable human wills, is continuous. To understand the laws of this continuous movement is the aim of history.
Only by taking an infinitesimally small unit for observation the differential of history, that is, the individual tendencies of man and attaining to the art of integrating them that is, finding the sum of these infinitesimals can we hope to arrive at the laws of history.
A theory of physics is not an explanation; it is a system of mathematical Bird Flight - Paul Harmann - Survival - The Natural World deduced from a small number of principles the aim of which is to represent as simply, as completely, and as exactly Maybe Thas Something - Sheryl Crow - In Concert possible, Falling Appart - Lys - Redbud group of experimental laws.
Aimed by us are futuristic humane machines wherein human level electronic intelligence and nerve system are combined to machines of ultraprecision capabilities. In Marc J. Madou, Fundamentals of Microfabrication: the Science of Miniaturization 2nd ed. All I ever aim to do is to put the Development hypothesis in the same coach as the creation one. Letter to Asa Gray 31 May Quoted in A. Originally published as Asa Gray: All the mathematical sciences are founded on relations between physical laws and laws of numbers, so that the aim of exact science is to reduce the problems of nature to the determination of quantities by operations with numbers.
All true science must aim at objective truth, and that means that the human observer must never allow himself to get emotionally mixed up with his subject-matter. His concern is to understand the universe, not to improve it. Detachment is obligatory. An indispensable hypothesis, even though still far from being a guarantee of success, is however the pursuit of a specific aim, whose lighted beacon, even by initial failures, is not betrayed. Anthropology has reached that point of development where the careful investigation of facts shakes our firm belief in the far-reaching theories that have been built up.
The complexity of each phenomenon dawns on our minds, and makes us desirous of proceeding more cautiously. Heretofore we have seen the features common to all human thought. Now we begin to see their differences. We recognize that these are no less important than their similarities, and the value of detailed studies becomes apparent.
Our aim has not changed, but our method must change. We are still searching for the laws that govern the growth of human culture, of human thought; but we recognize the fact that before we seek for what is common to all culture, we must analyze each culture by careful and exact methods, as the geologist analyzes the succession and order of deposits, as the biologist examines the forms of living matter.
We see that the growth of human culture manifests itself in the growth of each special culture. Thus we have come to understand that before we can build up the theory of the growth of all human culture, we must know the growth of cultures that we find here and there among the most primitive tribes of the Arctic, of the deserts of Australia, and of the impenetrable forests of South America; and the progress of the civilization of antiquity and of our own times.
We must, so far as we can, reconstruct the actual history of mankind, before we can hope to discover the laws underlying that history.
Architects who have aimed at acquiring manual skill without scholarship have never been able to reach a position of authority to correspond to their pains, while those who relied only upon theories and scholarship were obviously hunting the shadow, not the substance.
But those who have a thorough knowledge of both, like men armed at all points, have the sooner attained their object and carried authority with them. As translated in Morris Hicky Morgan trans. Architecture has its political Use; publick Buildings being the Ornament of a Country; it establishes a Nation, draws People and Commerce; makes the People love their native Country, which Passion is the Original of all great Actions in a Common-wealth.
Architecture aims at Eternity. Art and science coincide insofar as both aim to improve the lives of Bird Flight - Paul Harmann - Survival - The Natural World and women. The latter normally concerns itself with profit, the former with pleasure. In the coming age, art will fashion our entertainment out of new means of productivity in ways that will simultaneously enhance our profit and maximize our pleasure.
In The Columbia World of Quotations As a progressive discipline [biochemistry] belongs to the present century. From the experimental physiologists of the Windmills Of Your Mind (Extended Mix) - Sally Anne Marsh - Windmills Of Your Mind (Deluxe Edition) century it obtained a charter, and, from a few pioneers of its own, a promise of success; but for the furtherance of its essential aim that century left it but a small inheritance of facts and methods.
By its essential or ultimate aim I myself mean an adequate and acceptable description of molecular dynamics in living cells and tissues. At first he who invented any art that went beyond the common perceptions of man was naturally admired by men, not only because there was something useful in the inventions, but because he was thought wise and superior to the rest. But as more arts were invented, and some were directed to the necessities of life, others to its recreation, the inventors of the latter were always regarded as wiser than the inventors of the former, because their branches of knowledge did not aim at utility.
Metaphysicsb, In Jonathan Barnes ed. Basic research at universities comes in two varieties: research that requires big bucks and research that requires small bucks. Big bucks research is much like government research and in fact usually is government research but done for the government under contract.
Like other government research, big bucks academic research is done to understand the nature and structure of the universe or to understand life, which really means that it is either for blowing up the world or Bird Flight - Paul Harmann - Survival - The Natural World life, whichever comes first. Again, that's the government's motivation.
The universities' motivation for conducting big bucks research is to bring money in to support professors and graduate students and to wax the floors of ivy-covered buildings.
While we think they are busy teaching and learning, these folks are mainly doing big bucks basic research for a living, all the while priding themselves on their terrific summer vacations and lack of a dress code. Smalls bucks research is the sort of thing that requires paper and pencil, and maybe a blackboard, and is aimed primarily at increasing knowledge in areas of study that don't usually attract big bucks - that is, areas that don't extend life or end it, or both.
History, political science, and romance languages are typically small bucks areas of basic research. The real purpose of small bucks research to the universities is to provide a means of deciding, by the quality of their small bucks research, which professors in these areas should get tenure. Besides agreeing with the aims of vegetarianism for aesthetic and moral reasons, it is my view that a vegetarian manner of living by its purely physical effect on the human temperament would most beneficially influence the lot of mankind.
In letter to Harmann Huth 27 Dec Presumably published in Vegetarische Warte Vegetarian Watch, some time beforea German magazine published by the society Vegetarier-Bund of which Harmann Huth was vice-president. As cited by Alice Calaprice ed. This might be the inspiration for a much-circulated and much-elaborated version attributed, but apparently wrongly, to Einstein.
Biology occupies a position among the sciences both Still - Sun Dummy - Cricket and central. In Jacques Monod and Austryn Wainhouse trans. Physics does not consist only of atomic research, science does not consist only of physics, and life does not consist only of science. The aim of atomic research is to fit our empirical knowledge concerning it Bird Flight - Paul Harmann - Survival - The Natural World our other thinking.
All of this other thinking, so far as it concerns the outer world, is active in space and time. If it cannot be fitted into space and time, then it fails in its whole aim and one does not know what purpose it really serves. Letter to Willy Wien 25 Aug When narrow-minded scientists object to Catastrophe Theory that it gives no more than analogies, or metaphors, they do not realise that they are stating the proper aim of Catastrophe Theory, which is to classify all possible types of analogous situations.
Clarity about the aims and problems of socialism is of greatest significance in Bird Flight - Paul Harmann - Survival - The Natural World age of transition. Since, under present circumstances, free and unhindered discussion of these problems has come under a powerful taboo, I consider the foundation of this magazine to be an important public service. Clinical ecology [is] a new branch of medicine aimed at helping people made sick by a failure to adapt to facets of our modern, polluted environment.
Adverse reactions to processed foods and their chemical contaminants, and to indoor and outdoor air pollution with petrochemicals, are becoming more and more widespread and so far these reactions are being misdiagnosed by mainstream medical practitioners and so are not treated effectively. Leopold, Round River Culture is activity of thought, and receptiveness to beauty and humane feeling. Scraps of information have nothing to do with it.
What we should aim at producing is men who possess both culture and expert knowledge in some special direction. Doubtless the reasoning faculty, the mind, is the leading and characteristic attribute of the human race. By the exercise of this, man arrives at the properties of the natural bodies.
This is science, properly and emphatically so called. It is the science of pure mathematics; and in the high branches of this science lies the truly sublime of human acquisition. If any attainment deserves that epithet, it is the knowledge, which, from the mensuration of the minutest dust of the balance, proceeds on the rising scale of material bodies, everywhere weighing, everywhere measuring, everywhere detecting and explaining the laws of force and motion, penetrating into the secret principles which hold the universe of God together, and balancing worlds against worlds, and system against system.
But it is still to be remembered, that pure mathematics lie at the foundation of mechanical philosophy, and that it is ignorance only which can speak or think of that sublime science as useless research or barren speculation. Education aims to give you a boost up the ladder of knowledge. Too often, it just gives you a cramp on one of its rungs. Finally, I aim at giving denominations to things, as agreeable to truth as possible. I am not ignorant that words, like money, possess an ideal value, and that great danger of confusion may be apprehended from a change of names; in the mean time it cannot be denied that chemistry, like the other sciences, was formerly filled with improper names.
In different branches of knowledge, we see those matters long since reformed: why then should chemistry, which examines the real nature of things, still adopt vague Bird Flight - Paul Harmann - Survival - The Natural Worldwhich suggest false ideas, and favour strongly of ignorance and imposition?
Besides, there is little doubt but that many corrections may be made without any inconvenience. For if as scientists we seek simplicity, then obviously we try the simplest surviving theory first, and retreat from it only when it proves false. Not this course, but any other, requires explanation.
