Famous quotes containing the words science, religion, position and/or relation:

    Everything in science depends on what one calls an aper├žu, on becoming aware of what is at the bottom of the phenomena. Such becoming aware is infinitely fertile.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    People in general are equally horrified at hearing the Christian religion doubted, and at seeing it practised.
    Samuel Butler (1835–1902)

    My position is a naturalistic one; I see philosophy not as an a priori propaedeutic or groundwork for science, but as continuous with science. I see philosophy and science as in the same boat—a boat which, to revert to Neurath’s figure as I so often do, we can rebuild only at sea while staying afloat in it. There is no external vantage point, no first philosophy.
    Willard Van Orman Quine (b. 1908)

    The foregoing generations beheld God and nature face to face; we, through their eyes. Why should not we also enjoy an original relation to the universe? Why should not we have a poetry and philosophy of insight and not of tradition, and a religion by revelation to us, and not the history of theirs?
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
