Although science and the humanities are different in many ways, they provide the same quality of work to life. We simply could not survive with just science or just art. They work together in harmony. In an article by John Horgan, he describes the importance of science and the humanities combined:
But it is precisely because science is so powerful that we need the humanities now more than ever. In your science, mathematics and engineering classes, you're given facts, answers, knowledge, truth. Your professors say, "This is how things are." They give you certainty. The humanities, at least the way I teach them, give you uncertainty, doubt and skepticism."
