Scientists support Humanities

At an event at the LSE on “Valuing the Humanities”, Lord Rees, Master of Trinity College Cambridge and President of the Royal Society, spoke of the importance of a liberal education. A report of the event can be found here.

Dr Richard Smith, former editor of the British Medical Journal, has also written on the BMJ blog of the importance of the humanities to a medical training, to understanding health, dying and care, as well as other central preoccupations of the scientific community such as climate change.
