Hazardul este măsura ignoranţei noastre.

Chance is only the measure of our ignorance

byHenri Poincaré

(1854-1912)
Henri Poincaré was called the “last universalist” because he was a great contributor to so many fields in mathematics, but his work was also broad in physics, philosophy, and psychology.Poincaré speculated on how his mind works when he is solving mathematical problems. He had the critical insight that random combinations and possibilities are generated, some in an unconscious way, then they are selected among, perhaps initially also by an unconscious process, but then by a definite conscious process of validation.

Poincaré was thus the second thinker, after William James to propose the two-stage process of random alternatives followed by selection and determination of one choice which is the core idea of our Cogito model for free will.
