Blurred Science. The Incessant Pending Between Truth and Mistakes

Höög, Victoria LU (2014) In Lund University Research Magazine 3/2013.
Abstract
Both in the humanities and in the sciences, researchers make mistakes, and this is an essential part of the creative process. In a wider historical perspective, dead-ends can turn out to be the way forward.

Two fathers of scientific systems, Aristotle and Carl Linnaeus, serve as an argument for the thesis that errors, or what we later label as such, are a necessary element of scientific work. In their day, the errors were meaningful interpretations that formed part of a coherent, comprehensible worldview.
