Quoted Text
The gulf separating scientists from nonscientists extends to the intellectual world as well. This situation was articulated by C.P. Snow when he called attention to the problem of "two cultures"--one established by literary intellectuals, the other by scientists. In a lecture given at Cambridge University in 1959, he said, "I felt I was moving among two groups--comparable in intelligence, identical in race, not grossly different in social origin, earning about the same incomes, who had almost ceased to communicate at all."
