Sample text

Science is the quest for truth, not for certainty. How does it work? (8) Scientists, like all organisms, work with the method of trial and error. The trial is a solution to a problem. In the evolution of the plant or animal kingdom, error or, to be more precise, the correction of error usually means eradication of the organism; in science it usually means eradication of the hypothesis or theory. The process is thus one of Darwinian selection. Question: What in the animal realm corresponds to so-called knowledge, to conjecture or hypothesis?

The underlying idea of my theory of knowledge is that problems and attempts to solve them through hypotheses, theories, or conjectures precede all observation. Logically as well as historically, theories come first in our experience of the world - first both in our personal history and in the history of humanity. What correspond to theories at a prehuman level are dispositions and expectations. Magic and ritual probably have close antecedents in the animal realm. What we humans have in addition is the speech form of story-telling.

Incidental remark. Materialists and behaviourists are not keen on this. They will not accept any inner state, but propose to limit themselves to behaviour. But it can soon be shown that this is a mistake. A thermometer displays by its 'behaviour' not only the external temperature but above all its inner state: oscillating molecules with increasing amplitudes result in the lengthening of a column of metal. ) An animal may express its state through movements of its face or tail, even if no other animal is there to react to it.
