15 life quotes from Stephen Hawking

Stephen Hawking (Stephen Hawking) was one of the smartest people of our time, cosmologist, theoretical physicist and popularizer of science. In this article we have collected quotes of an English scientist that deserve attention.

One of the main merits of Stephen Hawking is the popularization of basic science. He, like Carl Sagan, tried in simple language to convey to us complex scientific topics: the structure of the Universe, the organization of space and time, the interaction of elementary particles. His books fly around the world in huge editions.

We have a lot to learn from Hawking, especially knowing that he has long been confined to a wheelchair and this illness has not become an obstacle for him to a happy life.

So far, most scientists are too busy developing new theories that describe what the Universe is, and they have no time to ask themselves why it is. Philosophers, whose job it is to ask the question “why,” cannot keep up with the development of scientific theories. In the XVIII century.philosophers considered all human knowledge, including science, the field of their activity and were engaged in discussing questions like: did the universe have a beginning? But the calculations and the mathematical apparatus of science of the XIX and XX centuries. They have become too complex for philosophers and in general for all but specialists. Philosophers have so narrowed the circle of their requests that the most famous philosopher of our century, Wittgenstein, said: “The only thing that remains of philosophy is the analysis of language.” What a humiliation for philosophy with its great traditions from Aristotle to Kant!
