Subject: [META] Mach: The Biological Task of Science

"The biological task of science is to provide the fully developed
human individual with as perfect a means of orientating himself
as possible. No other scientific ideal can be realised, and any
other must be meaningless."

         - Ernst Mach "The Analysis of Sensations" Ch.1, (1897)
