The thesis, refined beyond its most simplistic original forms, remains generally popular. However, historians of science no longer support it.

Famous quotes containing the words thesis and/or conflict:

    The average Ph.D. thesis is nothing but a transference of bones from one graveyard to another.

It would break through the ban of chastity, it would emerge—if in a form so altered as to be unrecognizable.
    Thomas Mann (1875–1955)
