Science and Philosophy
To know is to judge of what is that it is and of what is not that it is not.
 
Science is the sum total of knowledge acquired by reasoning rightly about the physical world.
The observations may be of events beyond our control (the "Big Bang," gamma rays, black holes) or of events that take placed under controled conditions.
 
 
Truth is not a form of matter and energy.
 
We cannot see, hear, taste, touch, or smell "truth" (or, if you insist, "absolute truth").
 
We can only know truth by the right use of the powers of the mind.
 
The powers of the mind are not observable through the senses.
 
The powers of the mind are only observable by thinking about thinking, understanding understanding, and judging judgment (Lonergan).
