Interest In Science Comes from Greed

I do not believe that the present flowering of science is due in the least to a real appreciation of the beauty and intellectual discipline of the subject. It is due simply to the fact that power, wealth and prestige can only be obtained by the correct application of science.


Science is necessary for wealth and power, so most people pursue it for those reasons rather than awe and enlightenment.
