Science Quote by John Dupré

January 9, 2012

“A particular scientific project can describe only one of the many ways things are”

— John Dupré 1996, p. 106, my emphasis

The fluidity and non-rigid boundaries of labels should be transparent when reading about any science, as scientific analysis can only truly be in‐depth when perceptive yet one‐directional in writing. This is to say that one study, despite managing multi-dimensionality, can never be all inclusive in thought, writing or theory.
