How I Work as Poet and Scientist Author:RONALD HOFFMANN
Date: March 21, 1988
I begin with a vision of unity of creative work in science and in the humanities and arts. The shared ground is clear: both involve acts of creation, accomplished through craftsmanship, with an attention to detail. Both science and art value the true economy of statement. They share a desire to communicate, although that often gets obscured by jargon and by the deadening ritual of the research report in science, by too personal a style or a disregard for audiences in art.
