book guide 50

Without being noticed, art and science have both had their territories greatly reduced to the extent that they have become considered as different categories that do not overlap with each other in the same field.
However, at some point in the past, the two words, Ars (art) and Scientia (science) not only included human knowledge and technology, but also both words jointly resided in each other's world.
Panofsky said that, later, all the elements that branched out in the name of natural science were crowded in the artists' studios of the Renaissance. Now again, we are going to have to start to extract those thoughts from the many books around us.
