Quotation #2

Claude Bernard's main drive was to establish the scientific method in medicine, and to insist upon the use of experimentation and existing scientific laws--and not assumptions--to derive truths. We can see that through one such line of his below:

"If an idea presents itself to us, we must not reject it simply because it does not agree with the logical deductions of a reigning theory."
Claude Bernard, An Introduction to the Study of Experimental Medicine, 1813
