philosophy has no meaning in the progress of science. the science - the innovation at the time - is the philosophy that fires the wick.
It is like a desire to know. because human beings who can not catch up with internal satisfaction and can not reach the pleasure of science producers can not see a "benefit" in science and do not want to proceed. (see pragmatism)
on the other hand, an independent philosophy of science is unthinkable. The philosophy based on the inadequate and non-objective meaning is born dead. it can not be universally considered.
philosophy without philosophy, or philosophy without science, to study physics on the skin. It is uninspired.
