In its attempts to understand the nature of scientific process and creativity, science became more porous to other disciplines and discourses. This porosity can be seen in the overlap between Proust and Poincaré, where A la recherche looks to science at key moments of justification, and as a way of describing the creative process, Science et méthode looks to aesthetics. A la recherche takes from science both the strength and the fragility of the law, the authority and the neediness of the subject. It is also a part of the large system of correspondences, of a lawlike nature which is sensually and intellectually accessible.
