Philosophy is not optional

Facts, in and of themselves, prove nothing.

Conclusions can’t be established until ideas are framed, interpretations are made, and implications are derived.

However scientific one’s premises may be, it is impossible to arrive on the other side of “therefore” without first taking an inferential leap across the abstractions of philosophical thinking.

What is a fact? A scientific discovery which, when divorced from a philosophy, points to nothing other than itself.
