Science is a very human form of knowledge. We are always at the brink of the known; we always feel forward for what is to be hoped. Every judgment in science stands on the edge of error and is personal. Science is a tribute to what we can know although we are fallible.

Jacob Bronowski 108 quotes

A man becomes creative, whethe...

A man becomes creative, whether he is an artist or scientist, when he finds a new unity in the variety of nature. He does so by finding a likeness between things which were not thought alike before.

Jacob Bronowski 108 quotes

The air in a man's lungs 10,000,000,000, 000,000,000,000 atoms, so that sooner or later every one of us breathes an atom that has been breathed before by anyone you can think of who has ever lived - Michelangelo or George Washington or Moses.

There is no absolute knowledge...

There is no absolute knowledge. And those who claim it, whether they are scientists or dogmatists, open the door to tragedy.

Jacob Bronowski 108 quotes

Nations in their great ages ha...

Nations in their great ages have not been great in art or science, but in art and science.

Jacob Bronowski 108 quotes

All science is the search for unity in hidden likenesses.

Certainty ends inquiry.

Science, like art, is not a copy of nature but a re-creation of her.

Knowledge is not a loose leaf notebook of facts.

The progress of science is the discovery at each step of a new order which gives unity to what had seemed unlike.

Jacob Bronowski 108 quotes

This is the concentration camp...

This is the concentration camp and crematorium at Auschwitz. This is where people were turned into numbers. Into this pond were flushed the ashes of some four million people. And that was not done by gas. It was done by arrogance. It was done by dogma. It was done by ignorance. When people believe that they have absolute knowledge, with no test in reality, this is how they behave.

Jacob Bronowski 108 quotes

To me the most interesting thing about man is that he is an animal who practices art and science and in every known society practices both together.

Man masters nature not by force, but by understanding

The symbol and the metaphor are as necessary to science as to poetry

Jacob Bronowski 108 quotes

Dissent is the mark of freedom...

Dissent is the mark of freedom, as originality is the mark of independence of mind. No one can be a scientist if he does not have independence of observation and of thought.

Jacob Bronowski 108 quotes

By the worldly standards of public life, all scholars in their work are of course oddly virtuous. They do not make wild claims, they do not cheat, they do not try to persuade at any cost, they appeal neither to prejudice nor to authority . . .

Jacob Bronowski 108 quotes

Knowledge is not a loose-leaf ...

Knowledge is not a loose-leaf notebook of facts. Above all, it is a responsibility for the integrity of what we are, primarily of what we are as ethical creatures.

Jacob Bronowski 108 quotes

That series of inventions by which man from age to age has remade his environment is a different kind of evolution -- not biological, but cultural evolution . . . 'The Ascent of Man.

Jacob Bronowski 108 quotes

There are two parts to the hum...

There are two parts to the human dilemma. One is the belief that the end justifies the means. That push-button philosophy, that deliberate deafness to suffering, has become the monster in the war machine. The other is the betrayal of the human spirit: the assertion of dogma that closes the mind, and turns a nation, a civilization, into a regiment of ghosts--obedient ghosts or tortured ghosts.

Jacob Bronowski 108 quotes

There are three creative ideas...

There are three creative ideas which, each in its turn, have been central to science. They are the idea of order, the idea of causes, and the idea of chance.
