Jacob Bronowski was, with Kenneth Clarke, the greatest popularizer of serious ideas in Britain between the mid 1950s and the early 1970s.

He denounced 'the destructive modern prejudice that art and science are different and somehow incompatible interests'. He wrote a fine book on William Blake while running the National Coal Board's research establishment. The Common Sense of Science, first published in 1951, is

"With infectious enthusiasm and a gift for conveying the excitement of ideas, Jacob Bronowski (1908-1974) discusses the impact of science on our sense of self and the need to revaluate ethics in light of the scientific perspective. As both a practicing scientist and an author of books on poetry, he makes interesting connections between the uses of the imagination in science and in literature. Whereas science creates experiments to test hypotheses about the outside world, he notes that literature also provides "experiments" in poetry and prose, allowing readers to experience what it means to be fully human and relating the individual's inner life to that of every human being
The Western intellectual tradition, from Leonardo to Hegel by Jacob Bronowski( Book )

An important feature of the book is its stress on the interplay of ideas from different fields. In particular, the authors give more attention than is usual to the ideas of science, to the movements of literary style, and to the innovations in the arts. This is a profound and evocative history of the life of ideas in their full setting: of men, of groups of men, of events
