Abstract

“Development of science could be compared not with the reconstruction of a town where even safe buildings are pitilessly destroyed to give a place to new constructions, but with the incessant evolution of zoological species which continuously develop and after that becomes unrecognizable for an ordinary eye, but where an experienced eye is able to find the signs of the preceding work of past ages. Thus, it would be wrong to think that theories which went out of fashion were futile and unnecessary” (Poincaré, 1946).
