Abstract:

"This book ... has a two-fold purpose: first, to compare and describe some aspects of the sciences and arts (humanities); and second, to offer prescriptions for the cure of some present cultural ills by examining the causes of the common misunderstanding between scientists and humanists ... (Chapter 2) is devoted to an examination of two works, one by an artist, the other by a scientist ... Chapter 3 analyzes the data used by scientists and artists to see whether there is a clear-cut difference, marking certain kinds of experience exclusively for the scientist and others solely for the use of the artist. The next three chapters examine the methods of scientist and artist ... and the kinds of results that they achieve by applying these methods ... Chapters 7 and 8 are devoted to examining certain general problems which confront us all ... problems having to do with relativeness and the function of absolutes and problems of value. Chapter 9 indicates ... some of the ways in which artists and scientists can improve their understanding of each other. Chapter 10 is a prescription ... for healing the schism between the sciences and humanities"--Introduction.
