"The notion that our society, its education system and its intellectual life, is characterized by a split between two cultures - the arts or humanities on one hand, and the sciences on the other - has a long history. But it was C. P. Snow's Rede Lecture of 1959 that brought it to prominence and began a public debate that is still raging in the media today. This reissue The Two Cultures and its successor piece A Second Look (in which Snow responded to the controversy, four years later) has an introduction by Stefan Collini, charting the history and context of the debate, its implications and its afterlife" -- from cover

A mathematician's apology by G. H Hardy ( Book )
36 editions published between 1940 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of the main themes of the book is the beauty that mathematics possess, which Hardy compares to painting and poetry. For Hardy, the most beautiful mathematics was that which had no applications in the outside world, by which he meant pure mathematics, and, in particular, his own special field of number theory. He justifies the pursuit of pure mathematics with the argument that its very "uselessness" meant that it could not be misused to cause harm. On the other hand, Hardy denigrates applied mathematics, describing it as "ugly", "trivial" and "dull."
