The avowed purpose of the exact sciences is to establish complete intellectual control over experience in terms of precise rules which can be formally set out and empirically tasted. Could that ideal be fully achieved, all truth and all error could henceforth be escribed to an exact theory of the universe, while we who accept this theory would be relieved of any occasion for exercising our personal judgement. We should only have to follow the rules faithfully. Classical mechanics approaches this ideal so closely that it is often through to have achieved it. But this leaves out of account the element of personal judgement involved in applying the formulae to the facts of experience.

  1. The purpose of the exact sciences id to
    (a) from opinions about our experience
    (b) formulate principals which will help us to exercise our personal judgement
    (c) assert our intellectual superiority
    (d) make formal and testable rules which can help verify experience
  2. An exact theory of the universe is
    (a) not desirable
    (b) improbable
    (c) possible
    (d) yet to be made
  3. In exact sciences
    (a) personal judgements are set aside in favour of a mechanical theory
    (b) on does not find answer to all questions and problems
    (c) one reposes faith in actual experience
    (d) one interprets the universe according to one’s wish
  4. Classical mechanics
    (a) has formulated precise rules on experience
    (b) has gained intellectual control over the world
    (c) has formulated an exact theory of the universe
    (d) just falls short of achieving intellectual control over experience
