newsletter On 7 May 1959, British physicist and novelist Charles Percy Snow gave a lecture at the Senate House, Cambridge, entitled The Two Cultures. In a nutshell, the thesis was that the breakdown of communications between the sciences and humanities, and a lack of interdisciplinarity, was one of the main hindrances to solving the world's problems. The lecture was subsequently published as The Two Cultures and the Scientific Revolution, which has become a classic and compulsory reference point for all matters pertaining to the relationship (or lack thereof) between the artistic/humanistic culture and the scientific/technical culture.

Almost sixty years on, culture policies are still practically devoid of science and technology, and relations between the two cultures are conspicuous by their absence. Paradoxically, this has not always been the case: in the classical world, the conventional functions of mimesis (repetition of models subject to a fee) and poiesis (invention of two pre-existing realities by displacement or integration) were present in both the artistic/humanistic and scientific-technical spheres, in a very different way to how they were in the Renaissance, modernity and the contemporary world.

Bestowing scientific and technological content on our cultural spaces and programmes is still an unfinished task. The same can be said of the lack of laboratories for artists and thinkers to work alongside scientists and technologists on common issues and problems, innovating together. We also need to push forward a cross-cutting debate on the ethical and philosophical ramifications of many of the changes taking place in the world today. On the 10th anniversary of the Centre for Contemporary Culture of Barcelona (CCCB) in 2004, Josep Ramoneda-a philosopher and its former director, already spoke of the need for a new humanism in which the scientific functions of 'eco', 'bio' and 'cyber' had a greater impact on culture. Apparently, we haven't got there yet...
