On the Irrational Factors in Scientific Discoveries
LI Wen?yao(Department of Office, Ministry of Railways, Beijing, 100844)
The thesis discusses the important role played in the process of scientific discoveries by irrational factors such as intuition, inspirations. It reveals the fact that the seemingly unexpected, illogical nature of inspirations and opportunities has made enormous contributions to accelerating the whole process. In fact, the success of such activities will hinge upon the study and research environment of the concerned academic institution, especially its research tradition and working atmosphere. The personal experiences of Nobel Prize owners have been cited by the author as a case in point.
