Albert Einstein

Development of Western science is based on two great achievements: the invention of the formal logical system (in Euclidean geometry) by the Greek philosophers, and the discovery of the possibility to find out causal relationships by systematic experiment (during the Renaissance).

I do not at all believe in human freedom in the philosophical sense... Schopenhauer's saying, "A man can do what he wants, but not will what he wants," has been a very real inspiration to me since my youth; it has been a continual consolation in the face of life's hardships, my own and others", and an unfailing wellspring of tolerance.
