The Two Cultures, by C. P. Snow


The Two Cultures by C. P. Snow was one of the most influential lectures of the 20th century, triggering an intense epistemological debate within higher education regarding the status of science that has persisted to this day.

The main theme of Snow’s lecture was to raise alarm about the growing knowledge gap between modern society’s scientists and everyone else, and to reinvigorate respect for science among cultural elites who were increasingly dismissive of it.
