Prof. Pavel Travnik, M.D., D.Sc. - Medicine must be based on scientific knowledge, responsibility and consideration for the patient

Personal opinions

Medicine should be based on the scientific knowledge, the responsibility, and the thoughtfulness to the patient.

Reputable science is well-founded by the consistent facts. Every finding should be authenticated from all reasonable points of view and should be compared with the actuality.

Quotes about science that I identify with:

One of the responsibilities of science is to distinguish between meaningful data and merely emotionally satisfying noise (Robert M. Youngson).

Science expands our power as much as it tames our pride (Claude Bernard).

It is not enough to know, knowledge must be applied (Johann Wolfgang Goethe).

Between true science and mistaken doctrine lies ignorance (Thomas Hobbes).

Pseudoscience is not discovered, pseudoscience is invented (Robert M. Youngson).

Science as opposed to pseudoscience:

  • is based on the laws of nature
  • explains by referring to the laws of nature
  • is testable with empirical facts
  • formulates conclusions hypothetically
  • is falsifiable (allows verification)

(Michael Ruse)
