Science is "Glorious Entertainment"

Out of man's mind in free play comes the creation Science. It renews itself, like the generations, thanks to an activity which is the best game of homo ludens: science is in the strictest and best sense a glorious entertainment.


Another quote I don't quite agree with. True, in a sense, that science is a product of our minds, but if it were only that, then it would be fantasy as well.
