Revisiting the "Two Cultures"

By Steven Pinker

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, October 2009

The author discusses the widespread perception that the arts and humanities are in trouble. He contends that this malaise is regrettable because the humanities are indispensable to being an educated person in a democracy. He concludes that scholars in the humanities should be exhilarated at the unexplored avenues for insight in our understanding of arts, ideas and culture.
