„The well known elevation of the pitch of wind instruments, in the course of playing, sometimes amounting to half a note, is not, as is commonly supposed, owing to any expansion of the instrument, for this should produce a contrary effect, but to the increased warmth of the air in the tube.“

—  Thomas Young, "Outlines of Experiments and Inquiries Respecting Sound and Light" (1800)

„The history of science should not be an instrument to defend any kind of social or philosophic theory; it should be used only“

—  George Sarton American historian of science 1884 - 1956
A History of Science Vol.1 Ancient Science Through the Golden Age of Greece (1952), Context: The history of science should not be an instrument to defend any kind of social or philosophic theory; it should be used only for its own purpose, to illustrate impartially the working of reason against unreason, the gradual unfolding of truth, in all its forms, whether pleasant or unpleasant, useful of useless, welcome or unwelcome.

„The soul is the effect and instrument of a political anatomy; the soul is the prison of the body“

—  Michel Foucault French philosopher 1926 - 1984
Discipline and Punish (1977), Context: The man described for us, whom we are invited to free, is already in himself the effect of a subjection much more profound than himself. A 'soul' inhabits him and brings him to existence... the soul is the effect and instrument of political anatomy; the soul is the prison of the body. Context: But let there be no misunderstanding: it is not that a real man, the object of knowledge, philosophical reflection or technological intervention, has been substituted for the soul, the illusion of theologians. The man described for us, whom we are invited to free, is already in himself the effect of a subjection more profound than himself. A 'soul' inhabits him and brings him to existence, which is itself a factor in the mastery that power exercises over the body. The soul is the effect and instrument of a political anatomy; the soul is the prison of the body.
