There has been nothing more frustrating in my experience with academia than dealing with scientific intellectuals who refuse to acknowledge the importance of the arts.

It is art - not history - that propagates culture, and we would be incomplete without it.

Those who are so stubborn as to dismiss the merits of the arts simply because they do not follow the particular rigors of the scientific method need to reconsider the metrics by which they deem themselves intellectuals.
