- Some Views of Science

In some sense, the concepts of Mach and Bohr discussed in the previous chapter are separated from the real world interactions in which we live our day to day lives. But then, are those considerations limited to an esoteric corner of science related merely to the philosophical interpretations of quantum mechanics? We will see that this question arises in a much more general discussion of a wide range of sciences, so it is certainly not limited to such an esoteric corner. In this chapter, I will explore these points a little further to illuminate how the question arises elsewhere. While this is certainly of interest, at least to me, some other observations which have appeared to me during the last half-century also will be discussed in this chapter. In some sense, these discussions may more likely be termed rants by me, but they have probably also occurred to others during this period.
