In Literature and Science, Martin Puchner explores the long and complicated relationship between literature and science. He begins with the ancient Greeks, who saw no distinction between the two disciplines, and then traces the development of the two fields through the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. He shows how the Scientific Revolution of the seventeenth century led to a split between literature and science, and how the two disciplines have interacted since then. Puchner argues that literature and science are both essential to our understanding of the world, and that we need to find a way to bring them back together.
