Frases Pierre Simon Laplace

„All these efforts in the search for truth tend to lead it“

—  Pierre-Simon Laplace
Context: All these efforts in the search for truth tend to lead it [the human mind] back continually to the vast intelligence... but from which it will always remain infinitely removed. This tendency peculiar to the human race is that which renders it superior... and their progress in this respect distinguishes nations and ages and constitutes their true glory.<!--pp.4-5

„The theory of chance consists in reducing all the events of the same kind to a certain number of cases equally possible“

—  Pierre-Simon Laplace
Context: The theory of chance consists in reducing all the events of the same kind to a certain number of cases equally possible, that is to say, to such as we may be equally undecided about in regard to their existence, and in determining the number of cases favorable to the event whose probability is sought.<!--p.6

„Imaginary causes have gradually receded with the widening bounds of knowledge“

—  Pierre-Simon Laplace
Context: Imaginary causes have gradually receded with the widening bounds of knowledge and disappear entirely before sound philosophy, which sees in them only the expression of our ignorance of the true causes.<!--p.3

„Given for one instant an intelligence which could comprehend all the forces“

—  Pierre-Simon Laplace
Context: Given for one instant an intelligence which could comprehend all the forces by which nature is animated and the respective situation of the beings who compose it—an intelligence sufficiently vast to submit these data to analysis—it would embrace in the same formula the movements of the greatest bodies of the universe and those of the lightest atom; for it, nothing would be uncertain and the future, as the past, would be present to its eyes. The human mind offers, in the perfection which it has been able to give to astronomy, a feeble idea of this intelligence. Its discoveries in mechanics and geometry, added to that of universal gravity, have enabled it to comprehend in the same analytical expressions the past and future states of the system of the world.<!--p.4

„Nature laughs at the difficulties of integration.“

—  Pierre-Simon Laplace
Quoted in I. Gordon and S. Sorkin, The Armchair Science Reader, New York, 1959.

„What we know is not much. What we do not know is immense.“

—  Pierre-Simon Laplace
Allegedly his last words, reported in Joseph Fourier's "Éloge historique de M. le Marquis de Laplace" (1829) with the comment, "This was at least the meaning of his last words, which were articulated with difficulty." Quoted in Augustus De Morgan's Budget of Paradoxes (1866).
