I am now, as a scientist, a passionate advocate of the Humanities. Studying the Humanities matters. Engineering might show you the ‘How’ of something, but it will not show you the ‘Why.’ What I learned from the pre-eminent scholars in MLA is that the perspectives of both the arts and the sciences are crucial. Without the Humanities, you have only half the equation. You have only half the world.
