The Poetic Philosophy Behind The Pursuit of Scientific Discovery

“Expect science to give all the answers to the wonderful questions we have, where are we, where are we going, what the universe means and so on. The thing is we will become disillusion and look for some mystic answer to these problems.

People keep asking me are you looking for the ultimate laws of physics? I say No I am not, I am just looking to find out more about the world…….”

“Clinton Richard Dawkins FRS FRSL (born 26 March 1941) is an English ethologist, evolutionary biologist, and author. He is an emeritus fellow of New College, Oxford, and was the University of Oxford’s Professor for Public Understanding of Science from 1995 until 2008.

Dawkins first came to prominence with his 1976 book The Selfish Gene, which popularized the gene-centered view of evolution and introduced the term meme. With his book The Extended Phenotype (1982), he introduced into evolutionary biology the influential concept that the phenotypic effects of a gene are not necessarily limited to an organism’s body, but can stretch far into the environment. In 2006, he founded the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science.” Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Dawkins

“Richard Phillips Feynman (/ˈfnmən/; May 11, 1918 – February 15, 1988) was an American theoretical physicist known for his work in the path integral formulation of quantum mechanics, the theory of quantum electrodynamics, and the physics of the superfluidity of supercooled liquid helium, as well as in particle physics for which he proposed the parton model. For his contributions to the development of quantum electrodynamics, Feynman, jointly with Julian Schwinger and Shin’ichirō Tomonaga, received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1965.”Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Feynman
