Humanities vs Science?

Science and humanities are often segregated in education and professional development. Even as a personal interest, the two disciplines are usually considered incompatible. In reality, they are complementary. Imagine if all science degrees included core humanities subjects in the first year? How would scientists, and science, benefit from a basic humanities perspective? This series looks for answers in some of the most common humanities disciplines.

    I am really looking forward to this piece and following your blog. I consider myself a social ecologist and have fought, since the early 1980s, to find a niche for myself combining the social and biological sciences. I still find that we operate in silos with too little cross-pollination between the two disciplines. So glad to have found you.

      Thanks for the kind words! I agree, I think both disciplines would benefit from more interaction with each other. I’ll be posting more blogs in this series soon, so hope you enjoy them!
