Work in Progress: Science over the Longue Durée

A biosphere is a layer of life between barren rock and sterile space.
Carl G. Hempel

“In order to attain theories of great precision, wide scope, and high empirical confirmation, science has therefore evolved, in its different branches, comprehensive systems of special concepts, referred to by technical terms. Many of those concepts are highly abstract and bear little resemblance to the concrete concepts we use to describe the phenomena of our everyday experience.”

Edmund Husserl, founder of phenomenology
