I remember a discussion at home when I was deciding to go to University. It was in the years after C P Snow had given his controversial Rede lecture "The Two Cultures". The worry was that literary and artistic people had become so divorced from any understanding of science that they could not understand the technical development going on around them. My father, who was then Managing Director of Andrew Muirhead's tannery in Scotland, argued that making leather involved both science and art and so neatly bridged the divide.
