#1. As you proceed through your study of physics, you will find that every one of the measurable quantities that is discussed can be specified in terms of only four basic dimensions: mass, length, time, and electric charge. In this chapter, we will begin a study of the first three of these. - Author: Karl F. Kuhn
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by Karl F. Kuhn
#2. They're more interested in their fucking iPhones than doing their jobs. I can see the glow of their phone screens on their faces as they check e-mail, update their Facebook slaveware, dream of living, breathing, and fucking through the anonymity of text and memes. - Author: Shane Kuhn
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by Shane Kuhn
#3. Sometimes pain can bring about clarity and remind us we're still breathing. - Author: Shane Kuhn
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by Shane Kuhn
#4. Data that did not fit the commonly accepted assumptions of a discipline would either be discounted or explained away for as long as possible. The more contradictions accumulated, the more convoluted the rationalizations became. 'In science, as in the playing card experiment, novelty emerges only with difficulty,' Kuhn wrote. But then, finally, someone came along who was willing to call a red spade a red spade. Crisis led to insight, and the old framework gave way to a new one. This is how great scientific discoveries or, to use the term Kuhn made so popular, 'paradigm shifts' took place. - Author: Elizabeth Kolbert
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by Elizabeth Kolbert
#5. What, then, is the hallmark of science? Do we have to capitulate and agree that a scientific revolution is just an irrational change in commit­ment, that it is a religious conversion? Tom Kuhn, a distinguished Amer­ican philosopher of science, arrived at this conclusion after discovering the naivety of Popper's falsificationism. But if Kuhn is right, then there is no explicit demarcation between science and pseudoscience, no distinc­tion between scientific progress and intellectual decay, there is no objec­tive standard of honesty. But what criteria can he then offer to demarcate scientific progress from intellectual degeneration? - Author: Imre Lakatos
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by Imre Lakatos
#6. A healthy community is one in which the elderly protect, care for, love and assist the younger ones to provide continuity and hope. - Author: Maggie Kuhn
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by Maggie Kuhn
#7. No language thus restricted to reporting a world fully known in advance can produce mere neutral and objective reports on "the given." Philosophical investigation has not yet provided even a hint of what a language able to do that would be like. - Author: Thomas S. Kuhn
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by Thomas S. Kuhn
#8. Paradigms are not corrigible by normal science at all. Instead, as we have already seen, normal science ultimately leads only to the recognition of anomalies and to crises. And these are terminated, not by deliberation and interpretation, but by a relatively sudden and unstructured event like the gestalt switch. Scientists then often speak of the "scales falling from the eyes" or of the "lightning flash" that "inundates" a previously obscure puzzle, enabling its components to be seen in a new way that for the first time permits its solution. On other occasions the relevant information comes in sleep. No ordinary sense of the term 'interpretation' fits these flashes of intuition through which a new paradigm is born. Though such intuitions depend upon the experience, both anomalous and congruent, gained with the old paradigm, they are not logically or piecemeal linked to particular items of that experience as an interpretation would be. Instead, they gather up large portions of that experience and transform them to the rather different bundle of experience that will thereafter be linked piecemeal to the new paradigm but not to the old. - Author: Thomas S. Kuhn
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by Thomas S. Kuhn
#9. Because it demands large-scale paradigm destruction and major shifts in the problems and techniques of normal science, the emergence of new theories is generally preceded by a period of pronounced professional insecurity. - Author: Thomas S. Kuhn
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by Thomas S. Kuhn
#10. I may even seem to have violated the very influential contemporary distinction between "the context of discovery" and "the context of justification." Can - Author: Thomas S. Kuhn
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by Thomas S. Kuhn
#11. I enjoy my wrinkles and regard them as badges of distinction - I've worked hard for them! - Author: Maggie Kuhn
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by Maggie Kuhn
#12. So, like the knights of old, I suited up in my trusty intern armor - brownish-green suit, sensible cap-toed oxfords, white button-down, and omnipresent LensCrafters glasses. If I wasn't able to shoot her, I could probably bore her to death. - Author: Shane Kuhn
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by Shane Kuhn
#13. The Kaiser Wilhelm Institute's eugenics studies were initially endowed by Gustav Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach, the head of the Krupp munitions monolith, and James Loeb, of the Kuhn-Loeb banking family. Loeb's relatives, the Warburgs, were banking partners of William Rockefeller, and both families were responsible for setting up the American Harriman family - also movers and shakers in eugenics - in business. - Author: Jim Keith
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by Jim Keith
#14. She paid for the coffee, took a used newspaper out of the bin, and sat in a comfortable leather armchair. She was shocked to see that people didn't move on after twenty minutes. Apparently, the price of one cup of coffee brought you the rental of an armchair and a free newspaper for as long as you liked, the whole morning if you wished. - Author: William Kuhn
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by William Kuhn
#15. I don't like comparisons with football. Baseball is an entirely different game. You can watch a tight, well-played football game,but it isn't exciting if half the stadium is empty. The violence on the field must bounce off a lot of people. But you can go to a ball park on a quiet Tuesday afternoon with only a few thousand people in the place and thoroughly enjoy a one-sided game. Baseball has an aesthetic, intellectual appeal found in no other team sport. - Author: Bowie Kuhn
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by Bowie Kuhn
#16. The man who succeeds proves himself an expert puzzle-solver, and the challenge of the puzzle is an important part of what usually drives him on. - Author: Thomas S. Kuhn
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by Thomas S. Kuhn
#17. I believe that in each generation God has called enough men and women to evangelize all the yet unreached tribes of the earth. It is not God who does not call. It is man who will not respond! - Author: Isobel Miller Kuhn
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by Isobel Miller Kuhn
#18. i love good cries,
loud sobs that soak your pillow
that kind that come at the end
of a perfect book

you're gasping for air
as droplets of salt water
trickle down your cheeks
into the corners of your mouth
as your chest rises and falls
and your vision is blurred
by the tears

but your mind is so clear
and your every thought
in that moment
feels so meaningful
and important and right

it feels okay to just
let it all out
it makes you feel like
you are free - Author: Madisen Kuhn
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by Madisen Kuhn
#19. The scientific enterprise as a whole does from time to time prove useful, open up new territory, display order, and test long-accepted belief. Nevertheless, the individual engaged on a normal research problem is almost never doing any one of these things. Once engaged, his motivation is of a rather different sort. What then challenges him is the conviction that, if only he is skillful enough, he will succeed in solving a puzzle that no one before has solved or solved so well. Many of the greatest scientific minds have devoted all of their professional attention to demanding puzzles of this sort. On most occasions any particular field of specialization offers nothing else to do, a fact that makes it no less fascinating to the proper sort of addict. - Author: Thomas S. Kuhn
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by Thomas S. Kuhn
#20. Almost always the men who achieve these fundamental inventions of a new paradigm have been either very young or very new to the field whose paradigm they change.15 And perhaps that point need not have been made explicit, for obviously these are the men who, being little committed by prior practice to the traditional rules of normal science, are particularly likely to see that those rules no longer define a playable game and to conceive another set that can replace them. - Author: Thomas S. Kuhn
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by Thomas S. Kuhn
#21. Power should not be concentrated in the hands of so few, and powerlessness in the hands of so many. - Author: Maggie Kuhn
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by Maggie Kuhn
#22. The term "paradigm," from the Greek paradeigma ("pattern"), was used by Kuhn to denote a conceptual framework shared by a community of scientists and providing them with model problems and solutions - Author: Fritjof Capra
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by Fritjof Capra
#23. Before Kuhn , most scientists followed the place-a-stone-in-the-bright-temple-of-knowledge tradition, and would have told you that they hoped, above all, to lay many of the bricks, perhaps even the keystone, of truth's temple. Now most scientists of vision hope to foment revolution. We are, therefore, awash in revolutions, most self-proclaimed. - Author: Stephen Jay Gould
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by Stephen Jay Gould
#24. We don't live our lives with this much order and control. To represent them in death like this is a lie. A proper cemetary should have big, gnarled trees among crumbling angel's and weathered tombstones arranged haphazardly. The grass should be littered with clover and worn down to dirt in places. Not like the manicured, rootless sod in this place. - Author: Kevin A. Kuhn
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by Kevin A. Kuhn
#25. but when i find a place to put my love, i will fucking die for you. i will hand over all my rations until you are fat and happy, and i am shriveled and happy. i will follow you across the country and i will take care of your dog and i will do your laundry. i will love you even when you yell at me. i will try to kiss you when you turn away. i will write poems and you won't read them. i will pretend that this is enough. this is enough. this is enough. this is enough. this is enough. this is- - Author: Madisen Kuhn
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by Madisen Kuhn
#26. I realized that hopeful feeling was just that: a feeling. and feelings keep you up at night, and they ake you feel sick when you're perfectly healthy, and they life. I didn't want to convince myself of a false truth just to feel okay. - Author: Madisen Kuhn
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by Madisen Kuhn
#27. Through the theories they embody, paradigms prove to be constitutive of the research activity. They are also, however, constitutive of science in other respects, and that is now the point. In particular, our most recent examples show that paradigms provide scientists not only with a map but also with some of the directions essential for map-making. In learning a paradigm the scientist acquires theory, methods, and standards together, usually in an inextricable mixture. Therefore, when paradigms change, there are usually significant shifts in the criteria determining the legitimacy both of problems and of proposed solutions. - Author: Thomas S. Kuhn
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by Thomas S. Kuhn
#28. A cynic is a man who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing. - Author: Shane Kuhn
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by Shane Kuhn
#29. But you were never really there, and I lie here motionless caressing the memories of a ghost - Author: Madisen Kuhn
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by Madisen Kuhn
#30. The attitude of the true scientist towards the real limits of human understanding was unforgettably impressed on me in early youth by the obviously unpremeditated words of a great biologist; Alfred Kuhn finished a lecture to the Austrian Academy of Science with Goethe 's words, "It is the greatest joy of the man of thought to have explored the explorable and then calmly to revere the inexplorable." After the last word he hesitated, raised his hand in repudiation and cried, above the applause, "No, not calmly, gentlemen; not calmly ! - Author: Konrad Lorenz
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by Konrad Lorenz
#31. Groups do not have experiences except insofar as all their members do. And there are no experiences ... that all the members of a scientific community must share in the course of a [scientific] revolution. Revolutions should be described not in terms of group experience but in terms of the varied experiences of individual group members. Indeed, that variety itself turns out to play an essential role in the evolution of scientific knowledge. - Author: Thomas Kuhn
Larzelere And Kuhn quotes by Thomas Kuhn
