AMCS 3430 - Literature And Science: One Culture Or Two?
Do scientists and students of literature view the world in incompatible ways, as C. P. Snow provocatively claimed half a century ago when he coined the phrase "the two cultures"? Alternately, are there areas of significant overlap? If so, what are these? We will focus on how the relations between literature and science in general, and literature and the life sciences in particular, have been examined and expressed in fiction, nonfiction and poetry of the past 150 years. Satisfies the Twentieth Century and later requirement.
