Painting by Katarina Countiss

“Science is not a heartless pursuit of objective information. It is a creative human activity. Its geniuses acting more as artists than as information processors. Changes  in theory are not simply the derivative results of new discoveries, but the work of creative imagination influenced by contemporary social and political forces.”
                                                                               -Stephen Jay Gould

 quoted in Math and the Mona Lisa The Art and Science of Leonardo Da Vinci By Atalay, Bülent (Book – 2004)
