The Humility of Never Knowing All

"I am the son of a chemist who became an authority due to his research on alkaloids. Because of this, he was occasionally called for as an expert in complicated poisoning trials. I am convinced that the courts were never very pleased with his expert testimony. He was a true researcher and always emphasized all that we do not know."

-Hans-Georg Gadamer, 1947
