Horst Spielmann

"If we are to use a criterion for choosing experiments to perform, the criterion of humanity is the best we could possibly invent. The greatest scientific experiments have always been the most humane and the most aesthetically attractive, conveying that sense of beauty and elegance which is the essence of science at its most successful".

The humanity criterion proposed by William Russell and Rex Burch in The Principles of Humane Experimental Technique (Methuen, London, 1959).
