The two cultures by C. P Snow( )

100 editions published between 1963 and 2014 in English and held by 3,457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The notion that our society, its education system and its intellectual life, is characterised 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 fiftieth anniversary printing of The Two Cultures and its successor piece, A Second Look (in which Snow responded to the controversy four years later) features an introduction by Stefan Collini, charting the history and context of the debate, its implications and its afterlife. The importance of science and technology in policy run largely by non-scientists, the future for education and research, and the problem of fragmentation threatening hopes for a common culture are just some of the subjects discussed

A mathematician's apology by G. H Hardy( )

58 editions published between 1967 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 2,442 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."
The masters by C. P Snow( Book )

159 editions published between 1951 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 2,432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the old Master slowly dies of cancer, his colleagues and peers jostle for power. Two candidates come to the foreground; Paul Jago - warm and sympathetic, but given to extravagant moods and hindered by an unsuitable wife - and Crawford, a shrewd, cautious, and reliable man who lacks any of Jago's human gifts. For Lewis Eliot, through whose eyes the narrative unfurls, the choice is clear, but politics and egos soon cloud the debate and the College is torn in two. Depicting power in a confined setting with clarity and humanity, 'The Masters' remains unsurpassed in its quiet, authoritative insight into the politics of academia
