Alhacen / Quotes

Quote: Alhacen


“The duty of the man who investigates the writings of scientists, if learning the truth be his goal, is to make himself an enemy of all that he reads, and, applying his mind to the core and margins of its content, attack it from every side.” – Abū ʿAlī al-Ḥasan ibn al-Ḥasan ibn al-Haytham (Alhacen, sometimes spelt Alhazen) 965-1040AD
