  15. “Hence, even in the domain of natural science the aid of the experimental method becomes indispensable whenever the problem set is the analysis of transient and impermanent phenomena, and not merely the observation of persistent and relatively constant objects.” ~ Wilhelm Wundt
  16. “But there is another reason for the high repute of mathematics: it is mathematics that offers the exact natural sciences a certain measure of security which, without mathematics, they could not attain.” ~ Albert Einstein
  17. “The theory of relativity worked out by Mr. Einstein, which is in the domain of natural science, I believe can also be applied to the political field. Both democracy and human rights are relative concepts – and not absolute and general.” ~ Jiang Zemin

  30. “If we suppose that many natural phenomena are in effect computations, the study of computer science can tell us about the kinds of natural phenomena that can occur.” ~ Rudy Rucker
  31. “As we survey all the evidence, the thought insistently arises that some supernatural agency-or, rather, Agency-must be involved. Is it possible that suddenly, without intending to, we have stumbled upon scientific proof of the existence of a Supreme Being?

They really do it. It doesn’t happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion.” ~ Carl Sagan
  38. “Natural selection is a mechanism for generating an exceedingly high degree of improbability.” ~ Ronald Fisher
  39. “In science it often happens that scientists say, “You know that’s a really good argument; my position is mistaken…”” ~ Carl Sagan

Under the name of Anarchy, a new interpretation of the past and present life of society arises, giving at the same time a forecast as regards its future, both conceived in the same spirit as the above-mentioned interpretation in natural sciences. Anarchy, therefore, appears as a constituent part of the new philosophy, and that is why Anarchists come in contact, on so many points, with the greatest thinkers and poets of the present day.” ~ Peter Kropotkin
  48. “Without the instruments and accumulated knowledge of the natural sciences… humans are trapped in a cognitive prison. They are like intelligent fish born in a deep shallowed pool. Wondering and restless, longing to reach out, they think about the world outside. They invent ingenious speculations and myths about the origin of the confining waters, of the sun and the sky and the stars above , and the meaning of their own existence. But they are wrong, always wrong because the world is too remote from ordinary experience to be merely imagined.” ~ E. O. Wilson
  49. “Astronomy was the cradle of the natural sciences and the starting point of geometrical theories.” ~ Cornelius Lanczos

  50. “If you ask … the man in the street … the human significance of mathematics, the answer of the world will be, that mathematics has given mankind a metrical and computatory art essential to the effective conduct of daily life, that mathematics admits of countless applications in engineering and the natural sciences, and finally that mathematics is a most excellent instrumentality for giving mental discipline… [A mathematician will add] that mathematics is the exact science, the science of exact thought or of rigorous thinking.” ~ Cassius Jackson Keyser

  52. “Yes, the natural sciences are telling us a great deal about human origins, the origins of our species the origins of our minds; we’re on our way to explaining a large part of it. I’ll accept an answer provided only by such means as obtaining and exploring, analyzing and arguing over the evidence – not because of a scribe’s myopic view of the subject written 500 years before the birth of Christ!” ~ E. O. Wilson
  53. “It is still open to question whether psychology is a natural science, or whether it can be regarded as a science at all.” ~ Ivan Pavlov

  54. “It is time, therefore, to abandon the superstition that natural science cannot be regarded as logically respectable until philosophers have solved the problem of induction.

Ayer
  55. “Science is not about control. It is about cultivating a perpetual condition of wonder in the face of something that forever grows one step richer and subtler than our latest theory about it. It is about reverence, not mastery.” ~ Richard Powers
  56. “Man, so far as natural science by itself is able to teach us, is no longer the final cause of the universe, the Heaven-descended heir of all the ages. His very existence is an accident, his story a brief and transitory episode in the life of one of the meanest of the planets.” ~ Arthur Balfour
  57. “Laws are important and valuable in the exact natural sciences, in the measure that those sciences are universally valid.” ~ Max Weber

  58. “Natural Magick is taken to be nothing else, but the chief power of all the natural Sciences; which therefore they call the top and perfection of Natural Philosophy, and which is indeed the active part of the same; which by the assistance of natural forces and faculties, through their mutual & opportune application, performs those things that are above Human Reason.” ~ Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa
