Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus by Ludwig Wittgenstein + comments  by Maarten Maartensz   



6.52 We feel that even when all possible scientific questions have been answered, the problems of life remain completely untouched. Of course there are then no questions left, and this itself is the answer.

O no - I don't feel so at all. My life, such as it is, depends very much on many scientific findings of the last centuries, and the same holds for everybody else. If there would be no modern science, there would be far fewer human beings.
