In 1959 the scientist-novelist C.P. Snow (1905-1972) delivered his famous Rede Lecture at Cambridge, published as The Two Cultures and the Scientific Revolution. His identification of a deep and dangerous divide between the sciences and the humanities has persisted, evoked more recently in the "culture wars" and "science wars." UMBC Professors Welch and Tatarewicz look at Snow, his historical context, and his enduring influence. G. Rickey Welch, Professor & Joseph N. Tatarewicz, Associate Professor and Director, Human Context of Science & Technology Program, UMBC
