Science, the Arts, and the Humanities
Man by Leonardo

Creativity, passion and the urge for expression and exploration are essential human qualities that inspire science, the arts, and the humanities, and thus constitute a common bond among them. WISL helps people explore, discuss, and cultivate the intellectual and emotional links between science, the arts, and the humanities. People can value, appreciate, and enjoy science without a deep understanding of specific details, just as they can appreciate music without a specialized knowledge of music theory, or appreciate literature, the theater, and the visual arts without being experts in those fields. Programs of the Initiative focus on the relationships, similarities, and differences in inquiry, creativity, and personal expression among scientists, artists, and humanists. A specific goal is to give musicians, artists, writers, and performers present and future an appreciation of science and enable them to see and understand the connections between science and the arts.
