Bronowski on art and science

'It has been one of the most destructive modern predjudices that art and science are different and somehow incompatible interests.
Science and the arts today are not as discordant as many people think.  The difficulties which we all have as intelligent amateurs in following modern literature and music and painting are not unimportant.  They are one sign of a lack of a broad and general language in our culture. The difficulties we have in understanding the basic ideas of modern science are signs of the same lack.  Science and the arts shared the same language in the Restoration.  They no longer seem to do so today.  And it is the business of each of us to try to remake that one universal language which alone can unite art and science, and layman and scientist, in common understanding.'
