The Commens Dictionary
Quote from ‘Minute Logic: Chapter II. Prelogical Notions. Section I. Classification of the Sciences’
Science is research; and research is science, from the first moment when the researcher casts aside all desire to prove his present opinions right, and burns with ardent desire to find out wherein they are wrong. Science thus consists in a disposition of living men; and therefore, the true divisions of science will be those which divide living men.
MS [R] 426:12
