Professor George Rousseau
Fifty years after the famous debates between C. P. Snow and F. R. Leavis the divisions of knowledge have altered, as have professional loyalties, disciplinary divides and the new interdisciplinarity. The question now is how we assess the degree to which the new debate about culture augurs an auspicious future. The 1959 debates were touchstones to reflect on deep differences between artists and scientists; now the touchstones summon us to interrogate the whole academic enterprise yet the original touchstones no longer touch.
