“There will remain a certain sphere which will be outside physics ... It is obvious that a man who can see knows things which a blind man cannot know; but a blind man can know the whole of physics.”
- Bertrand Russell

"We can recognize a materialist author by his habit of using the traditional forms of Christian piety in speaking about the material world.'
 – RG Collingwood


'Historically, we may regard materialism as a system of dogma set up to combat orthodox dogma. ... Accordingly we find that, as ancient orthodoxies disintegrate, materialism more and more gives way to scepticism.'

- Bertrand Russell

“The physical world is only known as regards certain abstract features of its space-time structure—features which, because of their abstractness, do not suffice to show whether the world is, or is not, different in intrinsic character from the world of mind.”

- Bertrand Russell

I think it is safe to say that no one understands quantum mechanics.
  — Theoretical physicist Richard Feynman (1967)

The  theory  has,  indeed,  two  powerful  bodies  of  fact  in  its  favour,  and  only  one  thing  against  it.  First,  in  its  favour  are  all  the  marvellous  agreements  that  the  theory  has  had  with  every  experimental  result  to  date.  Second,  it  is  a  theory  of  astonishing  and  profound  mathematical  beauty.  The  one  thing  that  can  be  said  against it is that it makes absolutely no sense!
  — Mathematical physicist Sir Roger Penrose (1986)

"The Greeks had no depth psychology and psychopathology such as we have. They had myths. And we have no myths as such--instead, depth psychology & psychopathology. Therefore, psychology shows myths in modern dress and myths show our depth psychology in ancient dress."

La Lune au plain de nuict sur le haut mont,
Le nouueau sophe d’un seul cerueau la veu:
Par ses disciples estre Immortel semond,
Yeux au mydi, en seins mains corps au feu.
 —Nostradamus, Quatrain 4, 31

The Moon in the full of night over the high mountain,
The new philosopher sees this with a unique brain:
By his disciples summoned to be immortal,
Eyes to the zenith, hands in the breasts of burning bodies.
