Jacob Bronowski was, with Kenneth Clarke, the greatest popularizer of serious ideas in Britain between the mid 1950s and the early 1970s.

He denounced 'the destructive modern prejudice that art and science are different and somehow incompatible interests'.

The identity of man by Jacob Bronowski ( Book )
