Excerpt from New Concepts in Diagnosis and Treatment Physico-Clinical Medicine the Practical Application of the Electronic Theory in the Interpretation, and Treatment of Disease: With an Appendix on New Scientific Facts
"I often say that when you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it; but when you cannot measure it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of meager and unsatisfactory kind; it may be the beginning of knowledge, but you have scarcely in your thoughts advanced to the stage of science." - (Kelvin.)
"Ich behaupte aber dass in jeder besonderen Naturlehre nur so viel eigentliche Wissenschaft angetroffen werden konne, als darin Mathematik anzutreffen ist." - (Kant.)
"Progress is symbolized in the clock, the balance and the foot-rule." - (Clerk-Maxwell.)
Paraphrasis of the foregoing implies that if we can time, weigh and measure, facts in lieu of theories could be submitted.
"Science, whose aim is to understand nature, must set out with the assurance that nature is understandable." - (von Helmholtz.)
"Is there any phenomenon which works upon neither our natural senses, nor upon their extensions, our present-day instruments and apparatus? Then, unless it be out of relation with things, must it still be bound up with other phenomena which do work upon our senses or our instruments. Thus it must sooner or later become perceptible to us." - (Wiener, Die Erweiterung unserer Sinne.)
