Curriculum Designed to Unite Art & Science, N.Y. Times, May 27, 2008.
Einstein and Shakespeare, two of the world’s immortal minds, are known respectively for very different talents, science and art. Could the two men have been best friends and appreciated the similarities in their work and embrace the differences as well? Modern academics tend to think these men would have been mates. The common belief is that there are more similarities than differences between humanities and the sciences. Curriculum around the world is reflecting this belief and stereotypes about the artist and scientist are being redefined.
