The Sciences, the Humanities, How they Differ, Why They Matter

Richard Foley

  • Reworks C.P. Snow's theses about the sciences and humanities
  • Defends the view that scientific methods aren't well-positioned to answer all questions of interest to us
  • Supports the view that the sciences and humanities are complementary, not rivals
