[I Am So Sorry To Hear Of Asher's Passing. I Will Miss His Scientific Insight And Advice, But Even More His Humor And Stubborn Integrity. I Remember When One Of His Colleagues Complained About Asher's Always Rejecting His Manuscript When They Were Sent To Him To Referee. Asher Said In Effect, 'You Should Thank Me. I Am Only Trying To Protect Your Reputation.' He Often Pretended To Consult Me, A Fellow Atheist, On Matters Of Religious Protocol.{Charles H. Bennett's Letter Written To The Family Of Israeli Physicist, Asher Peres}]

Caspar Friedrich Wolff Quotes

"He who wishes to explain Generation must take for his theme the organic body and its constituent parts, and philosophize about them; he must show how these parts originated, and how they came to be in that relation in which they stand to each other. But he who learns to know a thing not only from its phenomena, but also its reasons and causes; and who, therefore, not by the phenomena merely, but by these also, is compelled to say: The thing must be so, and it cannot be otherwise; it is necessarily of such a character; it must have such qualities; it is impossible for it to possess others—understands the thing not only historically but truly philosophically, and he has a philosophic knowledge of it. Our own Theory of Generation is to be such a philosphic comprehension of an organic body, a very different one from one merely historical. (1764)"
