Last quote by Hélène Langevin Joliot

Fundamentally, science discovers new facts, new ideas; it doesn't dictate the use of them, so people – even non-scientists – should have their say about what we use science for. If we just let anyone do anything, whether or not the wider public approves of it, well that's where science and humanism diverge.feedback

The most recent quote attributed to Hélène Langevin Joliot came from an article called Chemistry in the classroom: “There is a real problem. Obviously teaching today has developed a lot compared to what it was 50 years ago, or in Marie Curie's time. But we have to accept that despite that, the dominant attitude to science among the wider public is 'I don't understand science' so there really is a problem with science teaching. And going back to the ideas of Marie Curie, you really have to think about the approach she developed where actually she said you can't learn science from a book, you can only learn it by experiencing it.”.
