What is science?

Today's science is too much dominated by clever efficiency experts with short-term vision. They will tell you that hypothesis-driven research is a thing of past and that you should go for 'data mining'...

I wanted to become a scientist in order to learn what the world around me is made of. But I soon realized that scientific truth can very quickly prove to be false.

Science does not reveal definitive truths but a way to approach truth. It is not about collecting and organizing facts but about believing that we can understand the world through observation, experiments, and reflection.

--Gottfried Schatz

What is science?

It's the application of a logical frame of reference to a set of objects.
