Literature or Science?
There was always a struggle between science and literature for ownership of the intellectual territory of social criticism and social reform. Balzac's La comedie humaine was the nineteenth century French beginning of literary claim to possession. The struggle never ceased and is now centred on battles over cultural studies as opposed to scientific method. Is schism or reconciliation the solution? Ideally, there is toleration but not necessarily institutional integration.
