Mr. DePree also expects a "tremendous social change" in all workplaces. "When
I first started working 40 years ago, a factory supervisor was focused on the
product. Today it is drastically different, because of the social milieu.
It isnt unusual for a worker to arrive on his shift and have some family
problem that he doesnt know how to resolve. The example I like to use is a
guy who comes in and says this isnt going to be a good day for me, my son
is in jail on a drunk-driving charge and I dont know how to raise bail.
What that means is that if the supervisor wants productivity, he has to know
how to raise bail."
-- Max DePree, chairman and CEO of Herman Miller Inc., "Herman Millers
Secrets of Corporate Creativity", The Wall Street Journal, May 3, 1988

I believe that part of what propels science is the thirst for wonder. Its a
very powerful emotion. All children feel it. In a first grade classroom
everybody feels it; in a twelfth grade classroom almost nobody feels it, or
at least acknowledges it. Something happens between first and twelfth grade,
and its not just puberty. Not only do the schools and the media not teach
much skepticism, there is also little encouragement of this stirring sense
of wonder. Science and pseudoscience both arouse that feeling. Poor
popularizations of science establish an ecological niche for pseudoscience.
