Lipietz, Alain 1997, Mirages and Miracles, V E R S O,London
'In science it is self-evident that concepts are going to change; that is to say that, you hope to learn something. This is not theology, after all. You do not make declarations which you must preserve unchanged for the rest of your life. By contrast, in the social sciences or in humanistic studies, positions are often personalized. Once you have taken a position, you are supposed to defend it, no matter what happens. It becomes a question of honour not to change or revise an opinion, (that is, to learn something). Instead you are accused of refuting yourself if you modify your position."
