Intuition and concepts constitute... the elements of all our knowledge, so that neither concepts without an intuition in some way corresponding to them, nor intuition without concepts, can yield knowledge.
Immanuel Kant

A systematic revolution of basic concepts begins with Einsteinian science. In the very detail of its concepts a relativism of the rational and the empirical is established. Science then undergoes what Nietzsche called 'an upheaval of concepts,' as if the earth, the universe, things, possessed a different structure from the fact that their explanation rests upon new foundations. All rational organization is 'shaken' when the fundamental concepts undergo dialectical transformation.
Gaston Bachelard /
