Intuition and the Creation of a Better World

Tudge, Colin

Scientists must use their intuition, too, to tell them what is true. The maths alone doesn’t reveal the truth. It merely suggests possibilities. Most famously, the theoretical physicist and Nobel Prizewinner Paul Dirac said he judged the truth of an equation by its beauty. As Keats put the matter, "Beauty is truth, truth beauty … that is all ye need to know." Indeed the greatest scientists, like the greatest poets, are the most intuitive.
