„History of science played a very important role for me.“

—  Georges Charpak ukrainian-born french physicist 1924 - 2010
Context: History of science played a very important role for me. Before I knew well how to do an experiment, I knew why Joliot has missed the neutron, why his wife missed the fission, why they succeeded in having artificial radioactivity, and even why they almost missed the other things, by doing very nice experiments, but didn't come to the conclusion. That is science. Science is doubt, is research. It is not something which is – and that is the danger of teaching – which is too academic and which the people explain you it is like the logic thing that comes out of the computer, which is not true. You have intuition, you have passion. Nobel interview http://nobelprize.org/mediaplayer/index.php?id=425 with Professor Georges Charpak by Joanna Rose, science writer, 6 December 2001.

„The History of Religions is destined to play an important role in contemporary cultural life.“

—  Mircea Eliade Romanian historian of religion, fiction writer and philosopher 1907 - 1986
Context: The History of Religions is destined to play an important role in contemporary cultural life. This is not only because an understanding of exotic and archaic religions will significantly assist in a cultural dialogue with the representatives of such religions. It is more especially because … the history of religions will inevitably attain to a deeper knowledge of man. It is on the basis of such knowledge that a new humanism, on a world-wide scale, could develop. The Quest: History and Meaning in Religion (1969), p. 3.
