"Making a pretty picture, an image, is a completely different thing from acting to camera."

Niels Kaj Jerne Quotes

"More about the selection theory: Jerne meant that the Socratic idea of learning was a fitting analogy for the logical basis of the selective theories of antibody formation: Can the truth (the capability to synthesize an antibody) be learned? If so, it must be assumed not to pre-exist; to be learned, it must be acquired. We are thus confronted with the difficulty to which Socrates calls attention in Meno [ ... ] namely, that it makes as little sense to search for what one does not know as to search for what one knows; what one knows, one cannot search for, since one knows it already, and what one does not know, one cannot search for, since one does not even know what to search for. Socrates resolves this difficulty by postulating that learning is nothing but recollection. The truth (the capability to synthesize an antibody) cannot be brought in, but was already inherent."

Quotes About Intelligible

"It is quite true what Philosophy says: that Life must be understood backwards. But that makes one forget the other saying: that it must be lived—forwards.
