Favorite Critical Theory Quotes

1. "For those scientists who take it seriously, Darwinian evolution has functioned more as a philosophical belief system than as a testable scientific hypothesis. This quasi-religious function of the theory is, I think, what lies behind many of the extreme statements that you have doubtless encountered from some scientists opposing any critical analysis of neo-Darwinism in the classroom. It is also why many scientists make public statements about the theory that they would not defend privately to other scientists like me."
Author: James A. Shapiro
2. "The discovery of instances which confirm a theory means very little if we have not tried, and failed, to discover refutations. For if we are uncritical we shall always find what we want: we shall look for, and find, confirmation, and we shall look away from, and not see, whatever might be dangerous to our pet theories. In this way it is only too easy to obtain what appears to be overwhelming evidence in favour of a theory which, if approached critically, would have been refuted."
Author: Karl Popper
3. "A final word. Curious. Many years of reading many books has led me to a somewhat bizarre literary critical theory, namely that all significant texts are distinguished by the preponderance of a single word. In Alice's adventures in Wonderland that word is ‘curious' (In The Brothers Karamazov it's ‘ecstasy', but that needn't concern us here.) The word ‘curious' appears so frequently in Carroll's text that it becomes a kind of tocsin awakening us from our reverie. But it isn't the strangeness of Alice's Wonderland that it reminds us of-it's the bizarre incomprehensibility of our own."
Author: Will Self

Today's Quote

Quiero proceder a una especie de identificación. Saber que las pasiones existen y no poder sentirlas es horroroso.- Pero entonces -dijo Ángel-está claro que tiene usted por lo menos este deseo, y eso basta para que no esté tan vacío.- No tengo ningún motivo para decidirme por una cosa más bien que por otra -dijo Jacquemort-. Deseo robarles a los demás las razones que tienen."
Author: Boris Vian
