Richard Feynman a écrit:
I have a friend who's an artist and he has sometimes taken a view which I don't agree with
very well. He'll hold up a flower and say, "look how beautiful it is," and I'll agree, I think.
And he says, "you see, I as an artist can see how beautiful this is, but you as a scientist,
oh, take this all apart and it becomes a dull thing." And I think he's kind of nutty.

First of all, the beauty that he sees is available to other people and to me, too, I believe,
although I might not be quite as refined aesthetically as he is.
But I can appreciate the beauty of a flower.

At the same time, I see much more about the flower that he sees. I could imagine the cells
in there, the complicated actions inside which also have a beauty. I mean, it's not just
beauty at this dimension of one centimeter : there is also beauty at a smaller dimension,
the inner structure... also the processes. The fact that the colors in the flower are evolved
in order to attract insects to pollinate it is interesting — it means that insects can see
the color. It adds a question — does this aesthetic sense also exist in the lower forms
that are... why is it aesthetic, all kinds of interesting questions which a science
knowledge only adds to the excitement and mystery and the awe of a flower.

It only adds. I don't understand how it subtracts.

Mon aphorisme ayant précisément pour vocation de mettre un terme à ce genre de confusion entre art et science :-)
