Quote of the Day (Karl Popper, on Confirming Preconceived Notions)

“If we are uncritical we shall always find what we want: we shall look for, and find, confirmations, and we shall look away from, and not see, whatever might be dangerous to our pet theories.”— Austrian-British philosopher, academic and social commentator Sir Karl Popper (1902 –1994), The Poverty of Historicism (1957)
