"Science is a most peculiar enterprise. Science professes to seek knowledge for the pure joy of knowing, but measures this knowledge by the power over nature it endows. Science strives to separate what is known about nature from what is imagined or wished for in the mind; but such knowledge is best sought by a mind which is stirred by imaginings and driven by wishes. Science is thus divided in a deep dualism, knowledge and objectivity clashing with power and desires of man."

Barry Commoner. "The Implications of Molecular Biology for Man," address presented at the New School for Social Research. April 21, 1967.
