They then become labeled as 'conceptual necessities,' etc.
The road of scientific progress is frequently blocked for long periods by such errors." - Einstein "The mind likes a strange idea as little as the body likes a strange protein and resists it with similar energy.
It is humbling to discover how many of our glib assumptions, which seem to us novel and plausible, have been tested before, not once but many times and in innumerable guises; and discovered to be, at great human cost, wholly false." -Paul Johnson Notes: I constantly hear the above problem being dismissed; that the number of breakthroughs from crackpots is relatively tiny, or that "vindicated mavericks" are rare and exceptional. After all, the number of uneducated crazy people is enormous, but this has little impact on number of new ideas in professional science.
It's not honest to simply ask how many crazy ideas are actually crazy.
They rarely discuss the embarrassing acts of intellectual suppression which were directed at the following researchers by their colleagues. after wide reading, I've never encountered any similar list. This is very telling.
"When a true genius appears in this world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in confederacy against him." - Jonathan Swift "Concepts which have proved useful for ordering things easily assume so great an authority over us, that we forget their terrestrial origin and accept them as unalterable facts.
Therefore all the victims of such ridicule-suppression should have no reason to complain?
It's no way a Top Ten list of vindicated mavericks. I found no lists like this anywhere, so slapped one together myself. Ten years of new postdocs entering the field, ten years of folks achieving tenure.By definition, only the suppressed-vindicated breakthroughs can be detected.Perhaps this list only lacks a tiny percentage of ridiculed-never-vindicated.Or, instead my list may be the tiny, visible statistical tail on a huge number of never-vindicated, lost breakthroughs.(Chilling thought: the next Einstein has died unknown, refused publication, having lacked the necessary aggression to fight for ~ten years before eventual vindication.
