Famous quotes containing the words mathematics, computer and/or science:

    I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy.
    John Adams (1735–1826)

    The analogy between the mind and a computer fails for many reasons. The brain is constructed by principles that assure diversity and degeneracy. Unlike a computer, it has no replicative memory. It is historical and value driven. It forms categories by internal criteria and by constraints acting at many scales, not by means of a syntactically constructed program. The world with which the brain interacts is not unequivocally made up of classical categories.
    Gerald M. Edelman (b. 1928)

    Art is the beautiful way of doing things. Science is the effective way of doing things. Business is the economic way of doing things.
    Elbert Hubbard (1856–1915)
