Carl Sagan and Marx on science

“If we lived on a planet where nothing ever changed, there wouldn’t be much to do. There would be nothing to figure out. There would be no impetus for science. And if we lived in an unpredictable world where things changed in random or very complex ways, we wouldn’t be able to figure things out, and again there would be no such thing as science.” – Carl Sagan, Cosmos

“All science would be superfluous if the outward appearance and the essence of things directly coincided.” – Karl Marx, Capital, Vol. III
