Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, will sponsor a Conference on the Epistomological Relationship Between Science and the Humanities, to be held at the university. The four-day session is tentatively scheduled for March 1976.
Some fifteen years ago, C.P. Snow defined the 'two cultures' of the sciences and the humanities in his Rede lectures and began a discussion of the relative importance of scientific and humanistic ways of knowing in which seemingly little headway has been made since. The sponsors of the conference wish to pursue an inquiry into the possibility that the sciences and the humanities, as ways of knowing that are fundamental to valid enterprises, have something in common even as they move in different (but mutually intelligible) directions.
