"There is one special feature of modern biology, a feature that is itself a cardinal premise of modern science altogether, that seems to be both most powerful in yielding new knowledge of biological events and, at the same time, most untrue to life: the principle of objectification. Understanding this fact is the intellectual key to understanding the gulf between scientific knowledge and the world it purports to capture and explain."
