The End of Science Revisited
January 2004 (vol. 37 no. 1)
pp. 37-43

Scientists need a certain degree of faith to bolster their confidence in the arduous quest for truth; lacking such faith, science would not have come so far so fast. But when researchers reflexively deny any evidence and arguments that challenge their faith, they violate the scientific spirit.

Although we have grown up in a period of explosive scientific and technological progress, reflected by such measures as Moore?s law, science—especially pure science?might be entering an era of diminishing returns. Science itself tells us that there are limits to our knowledge.
