The maturity of a science
Why did I begin the talk with the above quote?
I want to draw your attention to one very important informal fact:
the maturity of a science is reflected in the ability of its
to estimate the quality of the match between
the reality and its model.
This is one of the main messages I would like you to keep in mind,
and I hope we will discuss it in this workshop.
How is our field doing in this respect?
