A demonstration grant to a former National Humanities Institute Fellow to conduct an undergraduate interdisciplinary course which compares and contrasts the scientific and humanistic world views.

To plan a course which will give students some sense of the virtues and limitations of two ways of looking at the world--one, scientific, and, the other, humanistic.
