“Science is about finding the most reliable way of thinking at the present level of knowledge”

“Science is a continuous challenge to common sense….Science is about challenging our a priori concepts of the world…the way we think and our mental vision of the world.  We keep changing our image of the world, to find a new one that works a little bit better…The past knowledge is always less.  We trust our past knowledge but we are always ready to modify our conceptual structure of the world.…Science is not about certainty.  Science is about finding the most reliable way of thinking at the present level of knowledge.  Science is extremely reliable but not certain…Science ideas are credible because they have survived all the critics of the past…The core idea of science is that we have wrong ideas and prejudices and ingrained ideas in our grasping of reality – that we have to revise…”
