If you eliminated that paper from the timeline, the Jenga tower of our intellectual history would remain perfectly upright. That doesn’t make those papers worthless, because research isn’t a collection of separable monologues. It’s a dialogue."
So if "applied" means "useful," doesn't it follow that "pure" must mean... "useless"?
