Persons or Science?

"Science has its inception in a participating person who is persuing aims, values, purposes which have personal and subjective meaning for him. ... he immerses himself in the relevant experience... He senses the field in which he is interested, he lives it. Out of this complete subjective immersion comes a creative forming, a sense of direction, a vague formulation of relationships hitherto unrecognized. ... It is indeed the matrix of immediate personal, subjective experience that all science, and each individual scientific research has its origin."

(C. Rogers, 1961: On Becoming a Person, p. 217)
