Ostwald developed [his] epiphany into his doctrine of energetics, which he thought should revolutionize all human understanding: natural and earth sciences, of course, but also history, economics, sociology, politics, even ethics and morality. The laws of thermodynamics, to Ostwald, implied a new categorical imperative: ‘waste no energy!’”
