“The world is an astonishing place, and the idea that we have in our possession the basic tools needed to understand it is no more credible now than it was in Aristotle’s day. That is has produced you, and me, and the rest of us is the most astonishing thing about it.”
– Thomas Nagel
“If the Nobel Prize could be awarded posthumously, I think they should consider Aristotle for the discovery of the principle implied in DNA. (…) ..the reason for the lack of appreciation, among scientists, of Aristotle’s scheme lies in our having been blinded for 300 years by the Newtonian view of the world”
– Max Delbrück, tysk-amerikansk biofysiker og nobelprisvinner
Med andre ord gleder jeg meg til mandag og “Et nytt perspektiv på universet”.
