Astronomical question and answer 226

 

Frank L. Preuss

 

How does then now the thinking of a scientist work?

 

I bring a quotation:

Henneaux: Above all in the 20th century the history of physics showed how important mathematical beauty and consistency is in physics. Symmetries play a central part in this. The physicist Paul Dirac had an extreme attitude on it: He said, when one must choose between two theories, a beautiful and one, which at present looks promising, one should decide for the beautiful theory, for it will be the right theory in the end.

 

This is the end of "Astronomical question and answer 226"
To the German version of this chapter: Astronomische Frage und Antwort 226
