    What is successive approximation? How are theories developed over time? What is the central thesis of Asimov’s ‘The Relativity of Wrong’? Discuss.

      “Successive approximation” is a curious myth, since it holds (1) we do not know reality, but (2) we know that our theories are more or less close to what the reality we do not know is. It is very much like Ponce de Leon saying “I do not know where the Fountain of Youth is, but I know that I am getting closer to it.”
