REMARK: 'Science is the belief in the ignorance of experts'--R.P. Feynman
By: Eric, on 11 Jan 2016


"So there came a time in which the ideas, although accumulated very slowly, were all accumulations not only of practical and useful things, but great accumulations of all types of prejudices, and strange and odd beliefs.

Then a way of avoiding the disease was discovered. This is to doubt that what is being passed from the past is in fact true, and to try to find out ab initio again from experience what the situation is, rather than trusting the experience of the past in the form in which it is passed down. And that is what science is: the result of the discovery that it is worthwhile rechecking by new direct experience, and not necessarily trusting the [human] race['s] experience from the past. I see it that way. That is my best definition...Science is the belief in the ignorance of experts."

                         --Richard P Feynman, What is Science? (1968)
