Science Beyond Science
When Galileo Galilei—more than 300 years ago—opened the new era of science, he defined “nuova scienza” (new science) by its goal: quantitification by measurements. And at the celebration of the 400th anniversary of Galilei’s birth, R. P. Feynman expressed so clearly the continuation of this idea till today:1
… the sciences have developed in a very good way directly and continuously from his original, in the same spirit as he developed. And as a result there are no more witches and ghosts.
