With the new prominence of information technology, genetics and climate change, has the gap between arts and sciences narrowed or grown even wider in the last fifty years?


Half a century ago, a lecture by C.P. Snow on 'The Two Cultures and the Scientific Revolution', deploring the gulf between artistic intellectuals and natural scientists, sparked a fierce debate about the 'Two Cultures'. Joining with the Science Museum, Tate Modern invites leading figures from the worlds of arts, science and public policy to revisit this question.
