-William Blake (1757-1827)

The scientist needs an artistically creative imagination

– Max Planck (1858 – 1947)

Every great advance in science has issued from a new audacity of imagination

– John Dewey (1859-1952)

To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science

The task is not to see what has never been seen before, but to think what has never been thought before about what you see everyday

– Erwin Schrödinger (1887-1961)

Art and science, it is clear, are neither new partners nor new antagonists; they are inextricable elements of the same historical quest for and understanding of life.
