Quote by Max Planck

A scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.


A scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its oppone

Summary

This quote suggests that the acceptance and recognition of scientific truths do not necessarily come from convincing those who oppose them, but rather from the passing of time and generational change. It implies that progress and the acknowledgment of scientific truths often occur when individuals who hold onto outdated ideas eventually cease to hold influence, allowing a new generation that is more open and familiar with the advancements of scientific knowledge to emerge.
