Unit 6 Post 2 – Sam Van Horn

“Most of our fellow human beings, for instance, are underfed and die before their time. In the crudest terms, that is the social condition” (Snow, 6).

? – Do you think C.P. Snow would value our inclusion of science in the Humanities course?

! – I feel that C.P. Snow’s writing is destructive for his readers as they are left with existential thoughts rather than a comprehensive message. Additionally, he talks a bit about ‘literary comprehensibility’ in relation to Dickens’ works, though he then talks about ‘valued writers’ and why this literary culture is held in high regard to society.
