Since we continue to ponder whether the Humanities or the Sciences are the [better, smarter, sexier, best economic choice, etc.], I will create a place for that ponderance to live and thrive, away from unrelated topics.
I feel I am uniquely qualified to host the conversation. My wife teaches in the humanities and I in the sciences. I read her dissertation, and she has consented that I write better than her students (although, not by much). I don't let her see much of what I write, for fear of the red pen, and she sends me data she collects, that I might turn it into pretty charts.
The rules for comments beneath this post:
