The two cultures: and a second look by C. P Snow( Book )

192 editions published between 1959 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 3,009 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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 of 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"--Cover

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

42 editions published between 1967 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 1,100 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."
