"Epistemology is that branch of philosophy which addresses the question: 'How do we know what we think we know? How do we know anything? The epistemological problem is that philosophers have never succeeded in answering the question. Many in the nineteenth century thought the answer lay in science. We could know things for certain through the scientific method... Perhaps the single most important discovery of modern science has been that there are limits to scientific inquiry. With a few ifs, ands, and buts, there is no more real certainty to be found in science than in theology. Yet uncertainty breeds anxiety. It is scary when our best minds are those who best know that they don't know." M. Scott Peck, M.D. The Road Less Traveled and Beyond.
