In 1959, British physicist and novelist C.P. Snow delivered an influential lecture titled “The Two Cultures,” in which he claimed the divide between the sciences and the humanities was to the detriment of finding solutions to world problems. The Second Law of Thermodynamics was to science what Shakespeare was to the humanities, and each field was ignorant of the other’s fundamental achievements.

Ideally, we would like another Leonardo da Vinci, someone who could bridge that chasm with ease, but art and science do not really have all that much to say to one another in general; instead, they often misunderstand or trivialize each other.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
