[Quote No.56598] Need Area: Mind > Learn
"[The importance of being skeptical until sufficient proof is acquired:] Among those points of self-education which take up the form of mental discipline, there is one of great importance, and, moreover, difficult to deal with, because it involves an internal conflict, and equally touches our vanity and our ease. It consists in the tendency to deceive ourselves regarding all we wish for, and the necessity of resistance to these desires. It is impossible for any one who has not been constrained, by the course of his occupation and thoughts, to a habit of continual self-correction, to be aware of the amount of error in relation to judgment arising from this tendency. The force of the temptation which urges us to seek for such evidence and appearances as are in favour of our desires, and to disregard those which oppose them, [often called 'confirmation bias'] is wonderfully great. In this respect we are all, more or less, active promoters of error. In place of practising wholesome self-abnegation, we ever make the wish the father to the thought: we receive as friendly that which agrees with, we resist with dislike that which opposes us; whereas the very reverse is required by every dictate of common sense. ... The inclination we exhibit in respect of any report or opinion that harmonizes with our preconceived notions, can only be compared in degree with the incredulity we entertain towards everything that opposes them... It is my firm persuasion that no man can examine himself in the most common things, having any reference to him personally, or to any person, thought or matter related to him, without being soon made aware of the temptation and the difficulty of opposing it... That point of self-education [science and practical wisdom] which consists in teaching the mind to resist its desires and inclinations, until they are proved to be right, is the most important of all, not only in things of natural philosophy, but in every department of daily life." - Michael Faraday
(1791 - 1867), pioneering English physicist and chemist. Quote from a lecture at the Royal Institution on the subject of 'mental discipline', he delivered on May 6, 1854, that was later included in his volume 'Experimental Researches In Chemistry And Physics'.

[Quote No.64306] Need Area: Mind > Learn
"[Skepticism is the vital first step towards objective truth:] A philosopher should be a man willing to listen to every suggestion but determined to judge for himself. He should not be biased by appearances, have no favourite hypothesis, be of no school and in doctrine have no master .... Truth should be his primary object. If these qualities be added to industry, he may indeed hope to walk within the Veil of the temple of nature." - Michael Faraday
(1791-1867), British scientist who contributed to the study of electromagnetism and electrochemistry. His main discoveries include the principles underlying electromagnetic induction, diamagnetism and electrolysis.
