Special Topic: The Intersection of Science and the Humanities

During the 20th century, the tension between the culture of the sciences and humanities increased. With shifts in the cultural and intellectual landscape of the Western world, the intersection of the sciences and humanities became undeniable. In our five weeks together we will read two books that look at the context of the debate and some of the concerns as expressed through fiction.
