Louis Victor de Broglie

The Philosophy of Science

 The history of science shows that the progress of science has constantly been hampered by the tyrannical influence of certain conceptions that finally come to be considered as dogma. For this reason, it is proper to submit periodically to a very searching examination, principles that we have come to assume without discussion.

― Louis de Broglie, Revolution in Physics, 1953.
