What's the most vital thing in science? (It's not the scientific method)


"...the past three centuries seem to have got on nicely without the aid of logic. Yes, I reply, they have, because there is one thing even more vital to science than intelligent methods; and that is, the sincere desire to find out the truth, whatever it may be, and that those centuries have been blessed with."
