Conventional wisdom is that science and humanities are essentially disconnected, looking at the world in their own characteristic ways. Physics 1203 shows striking connections between seemingly diverse arenas all through the evolution of scientific thought. Thus the course bridges the gap between the sciences and the human experience. It holds a strong appeal to a broad spectrum of students. Such a course can be useful to students for the rest of their lives.
