Education for uncertainty

2013

Why science is perceived as different from art or humanities? And if it is different, what is the nature of this difference and where this divide comes from? Unravelling the fundamental aspects of reality and understand the reality of our abstractions are part of the daily work of art and science.

In its deepest sense, it involves the process of integrating the inventions, innovations, tools and creative methods we use to understand the world and represent our knowledge and experiences. The joint analysis of art and science allows us to connect the domains of explicit and implicit knowledge.
