“What is the value of scientific research? Everybody knows that in our days more than ever before a man or a woman who wishes to make a genuine contribution to the advancement of science has to specialize, … Being engaged in such a specialized activity one naturally at times stops to think what it is good for. Has the promotion of knowledge within a narrow domain any value in itself ?” Starting from these questions raised by Schrodinger 65 years ago, I will elaborate in this talk my vision and perspective about the relationship between science and humanities (人文学科), and try to convince the audience that we scientists should and can gain various inspirations from the humanities.
