Science Quotes by Hyman Levy (1 quote)
Truth is a dangerous word to incorporate within the vocabulary of science. It drags with it, in its train, ideas of permanence and immutability that are foreign to the spirit of a study that is essentially an historically changing movement, and that relies so much on practical examination within restricted circumstances. Truth is an absolute notion that science, which is not concerned with any such permanency, had better leave alone.
— Hyman Levy
