Submission + - Why Study Humanities? What I Tell Engineering Freshmen (scientificamerican.com)

Lasrick writes: This is great. Here's a quote: 'But it is precisely because science is so powerful that we need the humanities now more than ever. In your science, mathematics and engineering classes, you’re given facts, answers, knowledge, truth. Your professors say, “This is how things are.” They give you certainty. The humanities, at least the way I teach them, give you uncertainty, doubt and skepticism.'
