Amin
Amin is on page 86 of 582 of Conjectures and Refutations: روش پوپری به فلسفه علم و تعریف دانش از این جمله کوتاه ولی مهم آغاز میشود که انسان از اشتباهاتش یاد می گیرد. با همین جمله، پوپر به جنگ آنهایی میرود که نگاهی مطلق به حقیقت دارند. تمام علم در چنین رویکردی تبدیل به حدسهایی میشوند که باید در محک آزمون قرار بگیرند و محکم ترین آنها تبدیل به علم روزگار میشود. بنابراین، آنچه امکان ردش نباشد اصلا علمی نیست

چنین رویکردی میتواند نتایج خطرناکی برای فلسفه و حتی سیاست داشته باشد

“Imagine that you are agonizing over a choice—which career to pursue, whether to get married, how to vote, what to wear that day. You have finally staggered to a decision when the phone rings. It is the identical twin you never knew you had. During the joyous conversation it comes out that she has just chosen a similar career, has decided to get married at around the same time, plans to cast her vote for the same presidential candidate, and is wearing a shirt of the same color—just as the behavioral geneticists who tracked you down would have bet. How much discretion did the “you” making the choices actually have if the outcome could have been predicted in advance, at least probabilistically, based on events that took place in your mother’s Fallopian tubes decades ago?”
Steven Pinker, The Blank Slate: The Modern Denial of Human Nature

Hannah Arendt
“That was totally different from what the Danes did. When the Germans approached them rather cautiously about introducing the yellow badge, they were simply told that the King would be the first to wear it, and the Danish government officials were careful to point out that anti-Jewish measures of any sort would cause their own immediate resignation. It was decisive in this whole matter that the Germans did not even succeed in introducing the vitally important distinction between native Danes of Jewish origin, of whom there were about sixty-four hundred, and the fourteen hundred German Jewish refugees who had found asylum in the country prior to the war and who now had been declared stateless by the German government.”

Steven Pinker
“Social psychology, the science of how people behave toward one another, is often a mishmash of interesting phenomena that are “explained” by giving them fancy names. Missing is the rich deductive structure of other sciences, in which a few deep principles can generate a wealth of subtle predictions—the kind of theory that scientists praise as “beautiful” or”
