paradigm


Random quote of the day:

“Science emerged from the Copernican revolution as the winner, the new paradigm, to use Thomas Kuhn’s famous term. But science is wrong if it believes it is the last paradigm or the only one that deserves credence. The nature of new paradigms, as Kuhn wrote, is that they explain more than the previous paradigm.”

—Deepak Chopra, The Huffington Post, October 10, 2005

“I’ve outlived my paradigm, I think,” I said to Jim.  “It’s shifted and I don’t want to go there.”

He nodded sagely and considered.  “The only truly dangerous thing to outlive,” he said, “is your pension.”

Truer words were never spoke.
