 I remember when the movie came out.

I asked Pops about Ghandi.

 He said he was about the same as all the power and ego crazed folks he'd seen,but he was a little smoother on the public delivery.

Carl Sagan, The Varieties of Scientific Experience


 
+1

Precise, absolute definitions and semantic precision are necessary for the creation of new and useful knowledge, And to effectively communicate this to other people.

A major reason we have made such great progress in technology is because in that area of knowledge there are precise and absolute definitions for the operative terms.

Regardless of language, culture, religion, ethnic origin, the terms mean the same thing to everyone.

This situation does not exist on what is commonly called "social science." And is a major reason we have never been able to solve any of other basic societal problems.
