Citações Abraham Kaplan

„Give a small boy a hammer, and he will find that everything he encounters needs pounding.“

—  Abraham Kaplan
"The Conduct of Inquiry", Context: In addition to the social pressures from the scientific community there is also at work a very human trait of individual scientist. I call it the law of the instrument, and it may be formulated as follows: Give a small boy a hammer, and he will find that everything he encounters needs pounding. It comes as no particular surprise to discover that a scientist formulates problems in a way which requires for their solution just those techniques in which he himself is especially skilled. p. 28.

„We are caught up in a paradox, one which might be called the paradox of conceptualization.“

—  Abraham Kaplan
"The Conduct of Inquiry", The proper concepts are needed to formulate a good theory, but we need a good theory to arrive at the proper concepts. p. 53.
